Please join the ACCJ for a special event with Carl Renner, Executive Director and Delon Abrams, Senior Policy Officer, of the International Forum of Independent Audit Regulators (IFIAR). IFIAR’s Members hail from 52 jurisdictions around the world, sharing the strategic objective of achieving significantly improved audit quality on a global basis. IFIAR is a key contributor to the FSB’s annual audit roundtable, providing updates on IFIAR’s global inspection survey report and developments relating to the “Big 6” global audit networks. IFIAR is a member of The Monitoring Group, a group of international financial institutions and regulatory bodies committed to advancing the public interest in areas related to international audit standard setting and audit quality.
Established as a forum in 2006, IFIAR selected Tokyo as the location of its first permanent office which was opened in April 2017. Messrs. Renner and Abrams will outline IFIAR’s activities and discuss IFIAR’s views on audit quality, among other topics.

As Senior Policy Officer, Delon’s responsibilities include delivering on the Secretariat work plan, supporting IFIAR’s Working Groups, managing external communications and monitoring compliance with the IFIAR Charter and internal policies.
