Overview 
Post the 2008 financial crisis EU Legislators started to focus on strengthening audit quality as a way of restoring investor confidence in financial information.  The session will focus on legislation which the EU enacted to effect important changes applicable to all EU public interest entities with a specific emphasis on Maltese structures having subsidiaries in the EU.  Such considerations include mandatory firm rotation requirements, rules regarding non-audit services which the auditor must not provide to EU PIE audit clients, fee cap on permitted non-audit services, enhanced role of the audit committee and audit reporting requirements.
