IAPA does not provide client services and it does not accept responsibility or liability for the acts or omissions of its members. Likewise, the members of IAPA are separate and independent legal entities, and as such each has no responsibility or liability for the acts or omissions of other members. While IAPA may include within its membership groupings of firms that together may form “networks” as defined by the IFAC Code of Ethics (Section 290) and the European Union Statutory Audit (revised 8th Company Law) Directive, IAPA is not a “network” in its own right, and thus is exempt from regulations applicable to “networks.” <br />
