RG 180 Auditor registration

Issued 28 August 2012

This is a guide for auditors and prospective auditors who wish to audit companies and other entities under the Corporations Act 2001 (Corporations Act).

This guide explains what an applicant must do when applying for registration as a registered company auditor (RCA) or as an authorised audit company (AAC), and how we may exercise our power to approve an auditing competency standard, which may be relied on by individual applicants for registration.

This guide also covers the lodgement of annual statements by RCAs and AACs.

Note: The auditor registration provisions discussed in this regulatory guide apply to all applications lodged after 1 July 2004. Auditors who were already registered before 1 July 2004 do not need to reapply for registration.
