During the webinar, IESBA representatives will explain the Code's new structure; and the substantive revisions, including to the conceptual framework and provisions relating to inducements, including gifts and hospitality; pressure; and preparing and presenting information. The webinar will also touch on the new Non-Compliance with Laws and Regulation (NOCLAR) and revised Long Association provisions which are already effective; as well as the IESBA's e-Code initiative.

Effective mid-June 2019, the Code reinforces professional accountants' responsibility to comply with the five fundamental principles of ethics and emphasises the International Independence Standards that apply in performing audits, reviews and other assurance engagements.

More information about the Code is available at the IESBA’s website.
