These Roundtables are intended to assist the AUASB in developing an Exposure Draft of a proposed pronouncement on the phasing of assurance and any other local matters. The AUASB kindly requests that registered attendees prepare for active participation by reviewing the Consultation Paper in detail and carefully considering the questions to which the AUASB is seeking responses.   

Input from these Roundtables comprises one aspect of the AUASB’s broader information-gathering activities related to assurance over climate and other sustainability information that will be considered in determining possible future actions. In addition to attending, the AUASB encourages stakeholders to submit written comment letters via the AUASB website by 3 May 2024.
