Audit legislation of the European Union

The European Parliament and the Council revised the audit legislation of the European Union by issuing a directive and a regulation in April 2014.

The EU Audit Regulation entered automatically into force as of 17.6.2016. The national amendments based on EU legislation entered into force in August 2016 by amendments in the Auditing Act (1141/2015). The Auditing Act (1141/2015) and the new audit regulation will provide a single framework and serve as a legislative basis for the audit sector.
