APES 230

RISE conforms to the standards set by the APESB in relation to Proposed Standard APES 230.  Accountants will only need to apply limited changes within their practice in order to conform with these standards due to RISE maintaining processes with its own business model that will adhere to the majority of these standards.  Any future changes to APES 230 will be assessed by RISE.  If these changes are relevant to the AR, RISE will provide training and support to help the AR adapt to these changes.
