Composition and mandate
The CEAOB is the new framework for co-operation between national audit oversight bodies at EU level. Its role is to strengthen EU-wide audit oversight, which is a key objective of the new EU legislation on statutory audit that took effect on 17 June 2016.
By facilitating supervisory convergence, the CEAOB contributes to the effective and consistent application of the new EU audit legislation throughout the EU.
The CEAOB is composed of representatives of
- the national audit oversight bodies of the EU
- the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA)
Representatives of the national audit authorities of the European Economic Area also participate. The European Banking Authority (EBA) and the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) are observers.
