The Consumer Protection Act
The presenter will be an attorney expert on this legislation, Eunice van Zyl, who is a partner at Van der Westhuysen Attorneys. She has advised extensively on the National Credit Act and the Consumer Protection Act and has developed an on-line training course on the Consumer Protection Act (in partnership with Compliance Online). She is also the co-author of Juta's Commentary on the Consumer Protection Act (to be published).
Independent review implications of the Companies Act
As you are aware, the Companies Act, 71 of 2008, and the Companies Regulations, 2011, became effective on 1 May 2011. There is a requirement that private companies determine their public interest score in order to ascertain whether they are subject to audit or independent review.
The new legislation, and specifically Regulation 29, has various implications for the auditing profession, e.g.
During the next two months the IRBA will be working closely with the Companies and Intellectual Properties Commission to determine and agree on the interpretation of the independent review requirements as per the Companies Act and Regulations.
The IRBA consultant on this project, Jillian Bailey, will be providing the training in this area. Jillian was previously Practice Review Director at the IRBA, and has extensive knowledge and background to the relevant processes.
