FSA and Bank of England announce new draft code of practice for auditors and supervisors

Following joint work with the Bank of England, the Financial Services Authority (FSA) has today published, for consultation, a draft code of practice designed to enhance the dialogue between auditors and supervisors.
Published on 10 February 2011

The aim of the code is to improve audit effectiveness and ensure that supervisors are better informed about, and able to challenge, the firms they regulate. Auditors have an important role to play in the supervisory process as the annual financial statements that they audit form the basis of the prudential information that the FSA uses when supervising firms.
