The Quality Control Committee (before 2002 this committee was named “peer review committee”) is responsible for establishing and executing a procedure of peer review applicable to all Belgian auditors. The Board of the Institute of Registered Auditors decided in 1991 that every member of the Institute is required to undergo a peer review at least once every five years. In 2002 the Belgian quality control and peer review standards were updated. A peer review focuses on the auditors’ working papers and office organization in general.

Note that these criteria are applied at company group level, but auditors are appointed per legal entity (individual group member). Hence, numerous rather small individual accounts and unlisted company accounts are subject to a mandatory audit in Belgium. The statutory auditor examines the company’s financial situation and its financial statements, consisting of the balance sheet, the profit and loss account, Belgium 21 and the notes. Subsequently, the auditor has to form an opinion as to whether the financial statements convey a true and fair view of the company’s shareholders’ equity and financial position at the balance sheet date, and whether the results are in accordance with the legal and administrative requirements.
