Ethics update 2021

Duration: 3 hours

Overview:

Ethics plays a fundamental role in acting in the public interest and delivering quality audit services. Ethics also forms an integral part of the audit profession’s code of conduct and requires proper knowledge by all participants in the profession.

Auditors can only apply an appropriate level of professional skepticism during audits, if they are independent. It is, therefore, crucial for auditors to always be aware of the latest changes in the ethics landscape, and understand how to apply relevant ethical requirements in practice.

This webinar will give participants a practical understanding of the latest ethical requirements and principles, and appropriate documentation in audit working papers through discussion of practical examples.
