Hints regarding evidence of deficiencies

The FAOA gladly receives hints regarding any deficiencies in audit firms or in the execution of legally stipulated audit services. The tipsters, however, have no legal standing and are thus not entitled to either access of records or information about the evaluation result.

The FAQ of the FAOA contain further information on the acceptance of clues (only available in German, French and Italian).

Foreign audit firms

If a company based abroad provides statutory or comparable audit services for companies under foreign law whose equities are listed on a Swiss stock exchange, it has to alternatively announce itself by declaration with the FAOA or have a licence as a federally-supervised audit firm.
