Who Will Benefit

  • Auditors

Key Topics

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the intent of the Standards and how the requirements should be interpreted.
  • Discuss practical application of the Standards in audits of small- to medium-sized entities.
  • Recall helpful resources to support quality performance.

At the core of every audit are the goals of identifying, assessing and responding to risks of material misstatement.

However, more than a decade after the Risk Assessment Standards were issued, the AICPA Peer Review team has found that more than one in 10 firms failed to comply with AU-C Section 315 or 330.
