The Office of the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board would like to extend its congratulations to our current Acting Chair, Bill Edge, who has been included in the group of 2021 inductees into the Australian Accounting Hall of Fame.

The citation supporting Bill’s induction into the Hall of Fame noted his role as a leader in the area of standard setting for the audit profession and the oversight of regulation covering the accounting and auditing profession, first as a member and then Chair, of both the Australian Auditing and Assurance Standards Board and the Financial Reporting Council, as well as his overall contribution to the discipline of accounting which extends across a wide range of areas encompassing accounting and auditing regulation, firm-based initiatives enhancing professional standards and developing risk and quality policies, and academia.
