The International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) has published Non-Authoritative Guidance on Applying ISAE 3000 (Revised) to Extended External Reporting (EER) Assurance Engagements.
The Guidance responds to ten key stakeholder-identified challenges commonly encountered in applying International Standard on Assurance Engagements 3000 (Revised), Assurance Engagements Other than Audits or Reviews of Historical Financial Information. The guidance promotes consistent high-quality application of ISAE 3000 (Revised) in extended external reporting assurance engagements to:
•strengthen the influence of such engagements on the quality of extended external reporting;
•enhance trust in the resulting assurance reports; and
•increase the credibility of extended external reports so that they can be trusted and relied upon by their intended users.
