Quality Controls

We belong to the less than 100 German auditing firms that audit listed companies, and are therefore subject to stricter and more intensive quality control than other auditors. The legally required and voluntary quality controls that we undergo include:

  • Peer review according to § 57a (German Auditors‘ Ordinance)
  • Ad hoc special investigations by the Auditor Oversight Commission (Abschlussprüferaufsichtskommission APAK)
  • Annual transparency report in accordance with § 55c WPO
    (Public Accountants Act )
  • Registration with the U.S. PCAOB (Public Company Accounting
    Oversight Board)
  • UHY International is a member
    of the Forum of Firms (FoF), an association of auditing firms aimed at ensuring high quality standards with international audits of annual accounts. Globally the FoF includes less than 25 companies
