AFB Seminar: What are the Expectations of the Regulators of Internal Audit Plans in the UK, EU and other Jurisdictions?

Please note: This event is being held in-person at EY’s offices in Canary Wharf.

This seminar will offer representatives of internal audit functions the opportunity to hear about the expectations of the UK regulators as to what is included in an audit plan in contrast to the rules/expectations in other jurisdictions such as the EU. The session, held in partnership with EY, will focus on the following key topics:

  • Booking Arrangements for Third Country Branches
  • Operational Resilience 

The section on booking arrangements will look at the PRA’s expectations (from an internal audit perspective) of international banks’ subsidiaries and branches, including risk management and controls as set out in the PRA’s Supervisory Statement 5/21. EY will also cover (from an internal audit perspective) the revisions to the EU Capital Requirements Directive (CRDVI) for bank branches, including its proposed new booking requirements.

This event will also consider operational resilience and the role internal audit functions will have in meeting the UK regulator’s expectations from implementation in 2025 alongside the requirements of the EU Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA).

Attendance at the seminar will be limited to 40 (two representatives per bank) and there will be an opportunity for attendees to share their views during a Q&A section.

Who should attend?

This session is aimed at members of the internal audit at AFB members who are interested in getting a view of how the UK regulatory requirements differ from other jurisdictions and how to approach the creation of audit plans.

What will members gain for use at their bank?

  • An understanding of how the PRA expects the audit functions of international banks in the UK to approach the operation of an audit plan
  • An awareness of the impact of DORA on the regulatory expectations for IA functions
  • An awareness of the impact of CRD VI and its booking requirements for international bank branches
