In today’s ever-changing auditing landscape, having a sound system of quality control in compliance with SSQC 1 is not just a matter of complying with the standards, but embracing it to create a strong foundation for a sustainable future. How can SSQC 1 help to strengthen the foundation of a professional firm?

Understand the relevancy of SSQC 1 to small and medium sized practices.
Understand the common practical challenges faced in complying with SSQC 1 and recommended approaches to address them.

Learn key findings from ACRA’s PMP and ISCA QA review on the firm’s system of quality control.
SSQC 1 Workshop 2014
Your firm may be in the midst of implementing or contemplating to implement SSQC 1 and may be facing some challenges in the implementation process. We have organised a SSQC 1 workshop on 19 September 2014 to provide insightful knowledge and help to address your concerns in regards to the implementation of SSQC 1. We also shared with the participants the results of ISCA’s inaugural SSQC 1 survey which focuses on the state of implementation of SSQC 1 by Small and Medium-sized Practices (SMPs) in Singapore.
What queries do you have about the implementation of the Singapore Standard on Quality Control 1 (SSQC 1)? What are the benefits of implementing SSQC 1? What problems have you encountered in implementing the ISCA SSQC 1 Practice Guides (the Guides) and what are possible practical solutions to overcome them?
To provide you with the knowledge in applying the Guides effectively in implementing SSQC 1 and to address your queries on applying the Guides, we have organised two SSQC 1 Guidance Workshops for you on 22 March and 19 April 2013. Six CPE hours are granted to the workshop participants. You may refer to the following event write-up of the workshop:
"The two ICPAS SSQC 1 Guidance Workshops, organised by ICPAS Quality Assurance Department, received overwhelming response from the public accountants of small and medium-sized practices (SMPs). Taking place on 22 March and 19 April 2013, the strong turnout clearly showed that SMPs have a keen interest in implementing or enhancing their quality control policies and procedures to raise the quality of their work."
