The Report on the Observance of Standards and Codes (ROSC) is a joint World Bank-International Monetary Fund (IMF) initiative, advocating and assisting member countries to strengthen their financial system by improving their capacity to comply with important internationally recognized standards and codes.

It is important for South African accountants to be informed regarding changes in regulations of our neighboring countries.

In Namibia, accountants are regulated by the PAAB (Public Accountants and Auditors Board) through SAIBA as a Professional Body. The PAAB has requested that SAIBA participate in the process of developing a new Act to regulate accountants and auditors in Namibia. The new Act will replace the current Public Accountants And Auditors Act, 1951, Act 51 of 1951 (PAA Act).

SAIBA arranged a webinar with The Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors (IRBA) to assist members in understanding the new Act. A representative from IRBA will present a webinar to provide background and information regarding the new Act.
