Standards & Guidance — International Professional Practices Framework (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. Take a look at the video to learn more about it.

New Standards Are Now in Effect
Modifications proposed for The IIA’s International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing were approved in October 2016 and are now in effect. The revisions include the addition of two new standards, alignment of the Standards to the Core Principles, and updates to existing standards.
All new implementation guides are available to help you with the key changes to the Standards. An updated edition of the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) guide, more commonly known as the Red Book, is now available for pre-order. Visit the IIA Bookstore for more information.
