Practice Advisories

Practice Advisories assist internal auditors in applying the Definition of Internal Auditing, the Code of Ethics, and the Standards and promoting good practices. Practice Advisories address internal auditing's approach, methodologies, and consideration, but not detail processes or procedures. They include practices relating to international, country, or industry-specific issues; specific types of engagements; and legal or regulatory issues.

Practice Advisories are available as a members only download or can be purchased as part of the International Professional Practices Framework from the IIA-Australia's Bookstore
