About ISQM 1

The globally accepted quality standard, ISQC 1, is being replaced on 15 December 2022 by a suite of three standards, including ISQM 1, that will require the attention of all member firms performing audits where ISQM 1 will be adopted (in some form) in your home territory. 

Hear your Technical Committee members share their experiences of transition from the existing ISQC 1 standard, including how they have approached the important risk assessment stage in ISQM 1.

Topics covered during this session: 

  • Insight into the areas of focus and challenges faced by firms in transitioning to the new standards
  • Feedback from member firms on progress so far, and top tips and sources of help and guidance
  • Opportunity for members to ask questions and direct future Technical Committee presentations on this topic
