How does a third-country audit entity apply for registration in the EU/EEA?

The Directive does not provide for a single registration across the EU/EEA, although Member States are cooperating closely on the implementation of these requirements. Therefore registration is the responsibility of each Member State. Applications must be made to the relevant body in each Member State where registration is required.

In Ireland, applications under the European Communities (Statutory Audits) (Directive 2006/43/EC) Regulations 2010 which give effect to the Directive 2006/43/EC of the European Parliament and the Council of 17 May 2006, should be submitted to the Irish Auditing and Accounting Supervisory Authority (‘IAASA’)
