Dr Stavros Thomadakis reappointed as IESBA chair

The International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) has reappointed Dr. Stavros Thomadakis as IESBA Chairman for a further one-year renewable term commencing 1 January, 2020, which was recently approved by the Public Interest Oversight Board (PIOB). Dr. Thomadakis has chaired the IESBA since 2015.

Under his leadership, the IESBA has revised and restructured the International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including International Independence Standards), which became effective in June 2019. In addition, the IESBA recently launched the eCode – a web-based tool that delivers the Code on a digital platform.

“The IESBA continues to address challenging issues affecting the accounting profession with high-quality future-ready ethics and independence standards. That very goal underpins our ongoing coordination with the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB). The IESBA is committed to supporting global adoption and implementation of the Code with innovative tools that increase the Code’s accessibility and usability,” said Dr. Thomadakis.
