Irish Audit Registration
Since 1 January 2020, firms are no longer automatically registered on the Irish Audit Register. This change has occurred (irrespective of the outcomes of Brexit) due to changes in the Companies Act 2014.
Only firms that have opted in to Irish audit registration will remain on the Irish Audit Register.
Audit requirements in the Crown Dependencies of Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man
Special arrangements apply to firms that audit companies incorporated in one of the Crown Dependencies that have 'transferable securities' admitted to trading on a 'regulated market' in the EU. The arrangements apply even if the firm or company is not operating in a Crown Dependency.

Practical audit support and guidance is available to ICAEW auditors including the latest regulatory updates, webcasts and monitoring reports.
PCAOB for non-US audit firms
