Standards

We are excited to be able to share that the new Global Internal Audit Standards™ are live. Now, it’s time to learn about the changes and how they impact you. 

This is the first major review since 2017 and follows several years of consultation by the IPPF Evolution Project Team. The new Standards are streamlined and simplified, and promise to lead the profession into the future, elevating quality from conformance to performance.

To support the release, we are holding a variety of events to choose from to get you started in the transition year.

Upcoming Training Course

Navigating the New Global Internal Audit Standards (GIAS) – Online Classroom

The Global Internal Audit Standards (GIAS) provide a comprehensive framework for internal auditors worldwide. These standards guide the professional practice of internal auditing, ensuring consistency, quality, and ethical conduct. Upon completing this 7-hour training program, participants will be well-equipped to apply the GIAS principles, enhance their audit skills, and contribute effectively to their organisations’ governance and risk management.

What’s next?

The new Standards come into force 12 months from release, so you have time to plan your transition.

Over the coming months, IIA Members can expect to see:

  • Some new and updated resources and courses
  • Detailed information about EQA impacts and options
  • Purpose specific tools for CAEs, ARC members, company directors, government agencies and regulators.  

In March, SOPAC® 2024 will have a special session titled ‘The new Standards – Implications for the profession’.

Then throughout the rest of 2024 we will transition remaining courses and resources based on priority so that we are all ready for January 2025 when they come into effect. CIA® exams will be updated from then.

If you have any questions about the new standards and how they impact you, please email [email protected] or call us on +61 02 9267 9155.

We look forward to seeing you online at one of our sessions and working with you in 2024 and beyond to continue to advance the profession.
