Auditor oversight

Auditor oversight was transferred to the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) on 1 January 2016.

  • We oversee and approve auditors.
  • We arrange auditor examinations on an annual basis and oversee the quality of auditing.
  • We maintain a register of auditors and a register of auditor examinations, as referred to in the Finnish Auditing Act.
  • We are in charge of general direction and development of auditing.

The PRH is the Finnish authority responsible for international co-operative oversight activities.
