Auditing standards-setter seeks views on its future

The Auditing Practices Board has launched a survey to help it develop plans for a new body that will replace it as part of the shake-up of the profession's regulatory structure.

The launch of the survey comes with the publication of its 1999 Annual Review.

As part of the new framework of independent regulation of the accountancy profession the APB will be replaced by a new auditing standard-setting board.

An APB spokesman said: ‘To assist the new board develop its work programme and establish its operating practices the APB has decided to undertake a survey to obtain views on existing APB documents and practices as well as future priorities for the new board.

‘The survey seeks to obtain the personal views of individuals rather than the corporate views of organisations ? it is not intended that replies will be placed on the public record.’

He added: ‘This is an opportunity for the users of APB pronouncements, and other interested parties, to have input into the future activities of the APB and they are encouraged to take advantage of that.’

Both the Annual review and the survey form can be downloaded from the APB’s website at www.apb.org.uk. The APB wants completed surveys by 30 April 2000.
