Factsheet on the new 2014 Audit Directive and Regulation

European Directive on Statutory Audits of Annual and Consolidated Accounts and Regulation on Statutory Audit of Public Interest Entities

The audit reform, taking the form of a Directive and a Regulation, has been approved in April 2014 and published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 27 May 2014.

The aim of this Factsheet is to both highlight any significant changes between the 2014 Directive and the 2006 Statutory Audit Directive (2006/43/EC) and reiterate significant requirements contained in the Directive as well as in the Regulation. 

FEE has also prepared a dedicated Factsheet highlighting aspects which are of specific relevance to SMEs.
