FMN - 2020/July, Seg.4 - Ethics and the Human Concern - Part II

Course Overview
The COVID-19 pandemic poses unprecedented risks to the world economy. The International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) and the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) are committed to doing their part in support of a global response. In addition to transitioning to fully digital platforms to facilitate stakeholder outreach, they developed, commissioned or sourced reference materials to each Board to help their stakeholders continue their work. Dr. Stavros Thomadakis, Chairman of IESBA, continues our prior month’s segment and starts by sharing his perspectives on the Coronavirus pandemic and how the economic crisis may impact the application of the Code of Ethics and the International Independence Standard.
