Advancing audit quality assurance systems: trends and opportunities
26/04/2018 to 27/04/2018

The EU4Business STAREP project is organising a regional workshop in Vienna on April 26-27, on Advancing audit quality assurance systems: trends and opportunities’.

The objective of the workshop is to enhance participants’ knowledge about audit quality assurance systems, through presentations and discussions about key principles of audit oversight and processes of quality assurance systems.

During the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to share experiences and learn from international experts, who will offer their reform experience about strengthening quality assurance systems in different countries. Discussions will draw on examples related to quality assurance systems in various parts of the world, and benchmark these to the relevant legal requirements of the EU acquis communautaire.

Strengthening Auditing and Reporting in the Countries of the Eastern Partnership (STAREP) is a regional programme implemented by the World Bank and funded by the EU, the Austrian Development Agency and the Austrian Ministry of Finance, as part of the EU4Business initiative. It aims to create a transparent policy environment and effective institutional framework for corporate reporting within the countries that make up the EU's Eastern Partnership.
