Practice Inspection Program


The CPA National Regulatory Steering Committee (NRSC), through its Practice Inspection Working Group, reviewed international standards for practice inspection as well as best practices across the country for all three legacy professions. This group had recommended the adoption of harmonized standards across the country that are closely aligned to the harmonized approach adopted by the CA profession. CPA Nova Scotia has accepted the recommendations of the NRSC and adopted this harmonized approach. 

The practice inspectors will consist of the Director of Professional Standards and contract CPAs who will be assigned to perform inspections based on their competencies and the specific engagements performed by your firm. Practice inspection reports will be assessed by the Practice Inspection Committee on an anonymous basis, meaning they will not include the member or firm name.

If you have questions regarding the Practice Inspection Program, please contact Bruce MacInnis, CPA, CA, Director, Professional Standards at bmacinnis@cpans.ca or 902-425-7273 ext. 234.
