Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) Internal Audit
Companies regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) are required to have an internal audit function to improve the level of corporate governance and provide another layer of assurance to the Board on compliance with applicable laws, rules, and regulations of the DIFC and DFSA.
- The company should build strong and robust control systems, and this holds true for systems other than the financial systems too. It needs to be ensured that senior management is involved in all key aspects of the business.
- An effective, transparent and detailed internal audit monitoring system should be established and nurtured by the company. This can help in a fair analysis of effectiveness of overall operations and the various functional units.
- The audit monitoring unit needs to function in an autonomous way, without intervention of the other existing business functions or departments.
