As part of The IIA’s commitment to being the global voice of the internal audit profession, we respond to select exposure drafts and thought leadership disseminated by regulatory and standard-setting bodies around the world.

The IIA provided comments and insights on internal audit’s role in <IR> and drew comparisons between <IR>’s potential to break down silos and lead to innovation to the IIA’s Three Lines of Defense Position Paper. Additionally, the response outlined three critical roles IA can provide in supporting reliability and credibility of <IR>.
