FRC set to release new audit regulation rules

 

The Financial Reporting Council, (FRC)  is set to introduce new rules on audit regulation in the country. Chairman of the FRC, Mr. Adedotun Sulaiman, disclosed this in Lagos while speaking at the inauguration of the Audit Regulation Working Group of the Council.

Adedotun said that the Working Group would provide technical assistance to the FRC in releasing a comprehensive set of rules over the next several months, to better regulate the independent audit of corporate financial reporting in the interest of members of the public.

The outcome of the activities of the working group also includes providing a more effective transition in the oversight of audits in Nigeria from the Professional Accounting Organisations to the FRC.

“The Working Group will assist the FRC to assess the state of audit regulation in Nigeria, develop new requirements for audit firms and auditor registration, regulation of broader assurance services, the practice reviews and inspection of audit firms provided for in Sections 60 and 61 of the FRC Act as well as requirement for the conduct of different assurance engagement”, he stated.

Also speaking at the   meeting,   Executive Secretary/Chief Executive Officer of the FRC, Mr. Daniel Asapokhai, said the Working Group is saddled with the responsibility of improving audit quality in the country and enhance economic growth.
