Johannesburg, 3 September 2018 – An outline of ethics education and expectations SAICA requires of prospective CAs(SA) in its rigorous qualification process.“Whether recently qualified or highly experienced, all chartered accountants [CAs(SA)] are required to uphold ethical principles and conduct themselves professionally. Acting with integrity, through adherence to the values stipulated in SAICA’s Code of Professional Conduct, is fundamental to the profession’s commitment to excellence and the public interest.” This is an extract from the SAICA Competency Framework where ethics forms a critical part, being one of the three pervasive skills competency areas to be developed in all entry-level CAs(SA).

Johannesburg, Monday, 2 October 2017 - The World Economic Forum's Competitiveness Report 2017-2018 that was released last week, shows that South Africa's overall ranking has declined from 47 to 61 (out of 137 countries included in the recent report). The global competitiveness index (GCI) comprises 114 indicators, which are grouped into 12 pillars. One of these indicators, of particular interest to SAICA, is the strength of the country’s auditing and reporting standards. South Africa has not retained its number one position in this regard, and is now ranked 30th.
