Professional Guidance

The Institute of Internal Auditors issued the new ‘Global Internal Audit Standards’ on 9 January 2024.  The new Standards take effect from January 2025 and are the central component of a new ‘International Professional Practices Framework’ (IPPF).

The IPPF is a framework providing a structural blueprint and coherent system that facilitates the consistent development, interpretation, and application of a body of knowledge useful to a discipline or profession. The IPPF organises the authoritative body of knowledge, promulgated by The Institute of Internal Auditors, for the professional practice of internal auditing. The IPPF includes Global Internal Audit Standards, Topical Requirements, and Global Guidance.

The New IPPF looks like this:


IAassist is a member service to:

  • Provide Members with tools and templates that can be effectively implemented in their internal audit work.

We are seeking authors to write White Papers and contribute to other publications – this is a great opportunity for IIA-Australia Members to contribute and at the same time get recognition for their effort. You can claim Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits and it’s something useful to include on your CV.

The IIA-Australia has a rigorous process around technical publication development:

  • Any relevant topic will be considered – the IIA-Australia does not insist on particular topics.
  • Expert peer review and editing is built-in to the process.
  • ‘Time to market’ is fast – a draft technical paper sent to the IIA-Australia would generally be published within one month.

If this is something you might like to consider, you are welcome to contact IIA-Australia Technical Services Manager Andrew Cox who will be happy to talk with you.
