|ALIGNING THE TIME LIMIT OF GENERATING UDIN FROM 15 DAYS TO 60 DAYS
Standard on Quality Control (SQC 1) on Retention Period for Engagement Documentation (Working Papers) requires firms to establish policies and procedures for the timely completion of the assembly of audit files. It further provides for an appropriate time limit within which the assembly of the final audit file is to be completed, ordinarily in not more than 60 days after the date of auditor’s report. Due attention is also drawn to Standard on Auditing (SA)- 230 on Audit Documentation, paragraphs A21 to A24 on assembly of the audit file.
