What's going on?

The IASAB has developed guidance to support heads of internal audit and individual internal auditors in the UK public sector.

It has the backing of all of the UK Relevant Internal Audit Standard Setters (RIASS).

IASAB guidance: Conformance with the PSIAS during the coronavirus pandemic

A further information paper on how internal auditors are doing things differently during the pandemic will be issued shortly.

The Relevant Internal Audit Standard Setters (RIASS) have agreed a new and revised set of Public Internal Audit Standards (PSIAS) that came into force on 1 April 2017.
