Circular 38 of 2018: Audit tenure.
Due to regulatory developments in the auditing environment to strengthen auditor independence, whereby it is mandatory for all public interest entities to disclose in their auditor’s reports the number of years which the audit firm has been the auditor of the entity (audit tenure), the Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) deems it necessary to align with these developments. The CMS is of the view that it would be prudent to extend this requirement to the medical schemes industry, in line with the mandate of the CMS regarding the protection of the interest of members of medical schemes.
