Our reason to exist

Enhancing confidence in global financial markets by supporting the PubIic Interest of the audit profession


Companies, governments, investors, citizens...

in one way or another, we are all actors in the global financial markets.

An extraordinarily complex world full of individual interests,

different ways of working, unique interpretations, national regulations...

That's why it is essential to have an independent oversight entity

that guarantees the public interest focus of the global auditing and ethics standards.

An institution permanently watching out for the public interest.

Since 2005 that entity has been known as the PIOB across the globe.
