Peer Review Conference

20 – 22 June 2018


The CBC Subcommittee on Peer Reviews invited all interested colleagues and parties to a conference Motivating and equipping SAIs to carry out peer reviews, that took place in Bratislava, Slovakia. The conference offered three themes, two panel- and one round-table discussions with a host of interesting contributions by varied personalities:

  • Theme I – SAIs leading by example through carrying out peer reviews
  • Theme II – Peer review tools to improve the SAIs performance
  • Theme III – Good practices in a peer review

The conference was organised with support of the Capacity Building Committee and its proceedings were translated into and from English, French and Spanish.

Update the peer review guidelines and provide best practice examples

The original Peer Review Guide with Checklist adopted as ISSAI 5600 in 2010 was translated into all INTOSAI official languages and some other working versions also were made (in Bengali, Hungarian, Mandarin, Portuguese, and Slovak).

ISSAI 5600 underwent complete reconstruction since 2010. The ISSAI 5600 along other INTOSAI standards underwent a makeover and was renamed as GUID 1900 Peer review guidelines.

In the period 2017 – 2022, the Subcommittee will continue to develop and update the existing peer review documentation through global peer review surveys.
