Audit quality

EY is committed to performing and delivering globally consistent, high-quality audits sustained over time. 

High-quality audits enhance trust and confidence in the capital markets and facilitate economic growth. Maintaining the highest-level of audit quality is therefore our highest priority. It is the single most important factor in our decision-making, and the key measure on which our professional reputation stands.

The Sustainable Audit Quality (SAQ) program is our commitment to conducting globally consistent, high-quality audits and is the foundation for keeping audit quality as our primary focus. 

We recruit, develop and retain the right people, embrace innovation, encourage simplification and monitor what we do closely. The changes introduced through SAQ have required significant investment and created a positive change for our people and the companies we audit.
