AFN AUD1 Notification of Intention to continue to undertake responsibilities of an Audit Principal for a Registered Auditor
Purpose of this form
The DFSA has recently made amendments to the regulatory regime applicable to auditors of Authorised Firms, Authorised Market Institutions, Public Listed Companies and Domestic Funds. As part of these amendments, the DFSA introduced a requirement to register Audit Principals of Registered Auditors.
Please refer to DFSA Consultation Paper 91 and the recently enacted Regulatory Law 2004 and Auditor Module (AUD) of the DFSA Rulebook for full details regarding amendments to the audit regime and status of Audit Principals. These documents can be found on the DFSA website www.dfsa.ae under the tab "Legal Framework".
Due to the nature of the amendments regarding Audit Principals, the DFSA requires existing Audit Principals to submit a notification to the DFSA confirming their intention to continue to undertake the responsibilities of an Audit Principal under the new regime, in addition to providing details that would, in the future, normally be required for registration of an Audit Principal.
The Audit Principal and relevant Registered Auditor must submit this form by Monday 20th October 2014. If an existing Audit Principal does not intend to undertake the responsibilities of an Audit Principal, the Audit Principal and the relevant Registered Auditor must submit an application to withdraw that individual as an Audit Principal (AUD 2 Form — Application to withdraw Audit Principal Status — found in the AFN Module of the DFSA Sourcebook).
