The IAASB is consulting on its progress in developing draft guidance in the first phase of its EER Assurance project. Public input is requested by June 21, 2019.
EER encapsulates many different forms of reporting, including, but not limited to, integrated reporting, sustainability reporting and other reporting by entities about environmental, social and governance matters.
This Consultation Paper includes the first part of draft guidance for practitioners applying International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3000 (Revised), Assurance Engagements Other than Audits or Reviews of Historical Financial Information, to EER assurance engagements. This Consultation Paper does not include an exposure draft of the anticipated full guidance as it is an interim consultation. Its purpose is to assist the IAASB to continue developing a complete non-authoritative guidance document that is due to be published in the second phase of the project as an exposure draft.
The IAASB particularly seeks input from those with practical experience in this evolving area of reporting, including practitioners and other experts involved in performing engagements, preparers of EER reports, investors and other users, standard setters and regulators.
