Critical appraisal of the EC audit reform proposals and the underlying areas of concern that they seek to address

REFORMING!THE!PROVISION!OF!EXTERNAL!AUDIT!SERVICES!

During’the’late’1990s’and’early’2000s’public’faith’in’the’external’audit’function’has’been’

damaged’by’a’number’of’issues’including;’a’number’of’large’company’failures,’financial’scandals’

and’the’banking’crisis.’Whilst’these’problems’may’not’be’wholly,’or’even’partly,’attributable’to’

external’auditors,’questions’are’being’asked’about’the’role’and’context’in’which’external’auditors’

play’their’part’in’the’oversight’of’financial’reporting.”

Historically,’the’accounting’and’audit’profession’has’been’largely’‘selfEregulating’’and’many’times’

before’there’have’been’calls’for’the’audit’profession’to’‘put’its’house’in’order’.”This’time,’in’

certain’quarters,’it’is’considered’that’the’‘status’quo’’cannot’prevail.’The’audit’reform’proposals’

from’the’European’Commission'(EC),’to’the’extent’that’they’are’finally’implemented,’would’have’

a’major’impact’on’the’external’auditing’sector’in’its’role’of’providing’professional’services.”

The’attached’article’entitled’Radical’Reform’by’Rachel’Fielding’from’Accountancy’Magazine’

November’2011’introduces’some’of’the’issues.’
