ACCA members, and future members, will have a route to attaining registered audit status in South Africa following the accreditation of the ACCA Qualification by the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors (IRBA).
The announcement means that ACCA members with the right experience can from 1 April 2024 register for IRBA’s Audit Development Programme (ADP), an 18-month audit specialism process which is its pathway to Registered Auditor status. Further details for ACCA members and future members are available here.
Helen Brand, ACCA chief executive (pictured), says: “We’re delighted that the skills and knowledge of ACCA members in audit have been recognised in South Africa. This will increase opportunities for our members and future members, as well as our ability to make a strong and positive contribution to South Africa’s economy and society.”
