Workshop on building effective regulation and education in corporate financial reporting in Moldova
The 4 April, the CFRR and ACAP RM organized a workshop on “Building effective regulation and education in corporate financial reporting”. The event was attended by over 90 participants from various government institutions, academia, and the accounting and auditing professions. The overall objectives of the workshop were:
to give participants an overview of the current situation of the audit profession in Moldova and to highlight the main responsibilities and challenges facing the profession;
to brief participants on the major changes to the law on auditing in Moldova, with a particular emphasis on the publication and application of ISAs and the Code of Ethics;
to take stock of progress in the implementation of key elements of the EU acquis communautaire relating to Statutory Audit, especially public oversight of audit and quality assurance of statutory auditors; and
to review the education requirements for statutory auditors and to highlight the requirements of International Education standards with focus on IES 7 and IES 8.
Staff from the CFRR gave two presentations at the workshop. Andrei Busuioc described the main developments in the regulation of audit at the EU level (the European Commission's proposals for a new directive on statutory audit and for a regulation on the audit of public interest entities), followed by a summary of how Croatia and Macedonia were implementing quality assurance arrangements for statutory auditors. Alex Fawcett then outlined how the the International Education Standards (IES), issued by the International Federation of Accountants, could be applied in practice in reforming the education of auditors. The main conclusion of the workshop was that building effective regulation and education remained one of the main challenges facing corporate financial reporting reform in Moldova.
