About this event

Improving audit quality is a shared goal of all parties in the corporate reporting ecosystem. But what does this mean in practice?

There is no generally accepted definition of audit quality. But, different organisations (see our factsheet) have been active in setting audit quality indicators (AQIs). Let’s hear what audit quality implies for them and their experiences in establishing AQIs in their various jurisdictions.

Webinar speakers:

  • Vanessa Teitelbaum, Senior Director, CAQ – US (Center for Audit Quality) (CAQ Audit Quality Disclosure Framework)
  • Tiago Silva Ferreira, Director, and Maria Goreti, Senior Officer, CMVM – Portugal (Portuguese Securities Market Commission) (CMVM AQI initiative)
  • Joachim Schindler, Audit Committee Chair, Salzgitter AG – Germany (IDW AQI initiative)
