Standards

Standards are principle-focused and provide a framework for performing and promoting internal auditing.

Standards and Guidance - IPPF

The International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) is the conceptual framework that organizes authoritative guidance promulgated by The IIA. A trustworthy, global, guidance-setting body, The IIA provides internal audit professionals worldwide with authoritative guidance organized in the IPPF as mandatory guidance and recommended guidance. The updated Framework was introduced in July 2015.
