Audit Quality Control

Quality, integrity, and independence: our minimum standards for transnational audits. As a global audit network, Russell Bedford International is committed to quality, integrity, and independence.

After several years of dedicated effort and significant financial investment, we have successfully developed and implemented a globally coordinated system for monitoring the audit quality control standards of our member firms.

We have policies and procedures, backed by rules and bye-laws, that require member firms conducting transnational audits to:

  • Maintain appropriate quality control standards in accordance with International Standards on Quality Control, issued by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB), in addition to relevant national quality control standards;
  • Participate in the networks audit quality control review program;
  • Have policies and methodologies for the conduct of audits based, to the extent practicable, on International Standards on Auditing;

Have systems and methods in place that, as a minimum, conform to the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants and national codes of ethics.
