Is your IA function compliant with the International Standards?

A blog by our EQA review team | 25 September 2017

If you want to know the answer to this question, please come over and talk to us at Internal Audit 2017 or book a free 15 minute consultation. Following the positive feedback received about the EQA hub at last year’s conference, it will be running again this year over the course of two days to advise you on how to get the most out of your next external quality assessment.

Members of our quality services panel will be on hand to talk about the review process, so come and talk to us about your particular situation in confidence. You will also be able to obtain a copy of the Internal Audit Effectiveness Report 2016/17 which provides a summary of the effectiveness of the internal audit functions we reviewed during this period. Booking a consultation in advance provides the opportunity for us to contact you via email prior to your appointment to establish particular areas you’re interested in to enable a more focused discussion.

All audit functions must complete an EQA every five years to fully conform with the International Standards. We are the custodians and authors of the standards and are best placed to be able to interpret them in a changing technological landscape. We have developed a range of EQA options which have been tailored to match the maturity of your internal audit function. These range from a readiness assessment, a full EQA to an assisted review which is targeted to specific areas you wish to improve/benchmark.

During our reviews you receive regular feedback; we adopt a no surprises approach to ensure you are aware of the issues and to discuss multiple solutions prior to the issue of the final report.

We only use highly experienced staff, many of whom have over 25 years’ experience as heads of internal audit in most industry sectors. Our aim is to add value to you and your team from the moment we meet with you. Most importantly, we will champion internal audit and its role within your organisation to all key stakeholders. Interested? Come over and talk to us at the conference.
