Role of the Accounting and Auditing Standards Panel

The Accounting and Auditing Standards Panel (AASP) develops most of CIPFA’s responses to UK and international consultations on standards for financial reporting and audit, working in partnership with other CIPFA panels and working groups where appropriate.

Key initiatives which the panel supports include:

AASP also pursues other projects as part of CIPFA's thought leadership and promotion of good practice.  This includes a publication setting out the standard setting landscape for public services in the UK, Accounting and Auditing Standards: A Public Services Perspective. A revised version of this incorporating recent changes in standard setting and other matters will be published in 2018.
