The AICPA has updated the Peer Review Manual to address identified issues in Risk Assessment. According to the Journal of Accountancy, one in ten firms fail to comply with the risk assessment suite. As a result, the Peer Review Program Manual was updated to include specific guidance regarding evaluation of noncompliance with the risk assessment standards. The changes were effective October 1, 2018. Risk assessment, internal controls and documentation will continue to be targets of the AICPA based on the results of the Enhancing Audit Quality (EAQ) Initiative.
