The International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) concluded a comprehensive project to reassess and revise the application and results of professional ethics by accounting professionals when it published its revised Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants in 2018. This project brought substantial changes to the structure of the code and introduced more robust requirements relating to independence, non-compliance with laws and regulations, long-association, professional scepticism and other crucial application areas.
The IESBA continues to implement its strategic plan, focusing on projects that enhance existing sections of the Code or provide further research, interaction or guidance on other ethical matters of application in the profession and in response to global observations.
This short course is an annual ethics update that is designed to provide accounting professionals with a revision of the existing Code in the form of a refresher on the existing requirements and application of the Code, as well as an update on the completed and current publications and activities of the IESBA, including considerations for their practical application in practice. This update will ensure that accounting practitioners maintain their ethical mindset and will ensure that they are up to date with recent developments in the profession, as required by professional membership bodies and by the fundamental principle of professional competence and due care.
