The Technical Committee (TC) comprises three members chosen by the IC from non-IC Members and its role is to advise the IC and CEO on technical aspects of the quality review and audit independence systems of the network, to propose the regulatory framework for those systems, to appoint and guide quality reviewers and to assess member firms on their quality assurance performance.

"We are delighted to welcome Abe on to the Technical Committee, where he will be able to bring his considerable expertise to bear for the benefit of other members. Abe has already spent fourteen years as a Partner with Bass Gordon, South Africa - a member firm since 1985- and has considerable experience in audit assurance, quality management and general business accounting and taxation services.  His arrival also gives us a decent breadth of representation on the Committee, as he joins Jane from London and Karin from Brazil."
