2018 SAICA NOCLAR Practical Cases and Interactive Discussion - Seminar
Who Should Attend
  • CAs(SA) and AGAs(SA) in public practice and their professional staff; any practitioner that provides professional services (auditors and non-auditors)
  • Registered auditors and their professional staff
  • CAs(SA) and AGAs(SA) employed in business; i.e. performing professional activities for an employing organisation (at senior level and at other levels)
  • Those charged with governance, including directors, audit committee members, members of governing bodies of different types of entities, etc.
  • Regulators and their staff who may be the recipients of reports on NOCLAR
In response to requests from members and associates, SAICA has developed this session that provides delegates with the opportunity to discuss a number of case studies to illustrate the practical application of the NOCLAR provisions, as well as engaging in a general interactive discussion regarding NOCLAR.

The NOCLAR (non-compliance with laws and regulations) provisions was introduced in the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (IESBA Code), and has subsequently been adopted and prescribed for use in South Africa, through the SAICA Code of Professional Conduct (SAICA Code) for all SAICA members and associates, as well as the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors (IRBA) Code of Professional Conduct for Registered Auditors (IRBA Code). The NOCLAR provisions have been effective since 15 July 2017.

The NOCLAR provisions affect all SAICA members and associates - section 225 of the SAICA Code applies to members and associates who are active in public practice, and section 360 applies to those who are active in business (i.e. members and associates other than those who place professional services at the disposal of the public for reward).

SAICA has undertaken various initiatives during 2016 and 2017, including a comprehensive NOCLAR technical seminar and the issuing of supplementary material in the form of an Overview and Summary of the NOCLAR Response Framework and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).This session further supplements the available guidance.
