PROPOSED INTERNATIONAL AUDITING PRACTICE STATEMENT 1000, SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS IN AUDITING COMPLEX FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
The proposed IAPS 1000 highlights practical considerations for auditors when dealing with complex financial instruments. The proposed IAPS 1000 gives particular emphasis to auditing considerations relating to valuation and disclosure issues for financial statement items measured at fair value.
Along with the proposed IAPS 1000, the IAASB is also exposing for comment proposed changes to the current Preface to the International Standards on Quality Control, Auditing, Review, Other Assurance and Related Services which explains the authority of this and future IAPSs.

PROPOSED INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ON RELATED SERVICES 4410, COMPILATION ENGAGEMENTS
The proposed ISRS 4410 is the first step in the IAASB's work to create robust standards for services that can be used by entities that are either not required or do not elect to be audited to meet their business reporting needs. Through a compilation engagement, practitioners can provide significant benefit by applying their expertise in accounting and financial reporting. This expertise is applied to assist the management of an entity in preparing and presenting historical financial information for use by the entity’s internal or external stakeholders.
