On the motion of the Economic Affairs Committee, the second reading of the Bill on Amendments to the National Audit Office Act and the Authorised Public Accountants Act (58 SE), initiated by the Government, was concluded. The purpose of the Bill is to extend the term for taking the recertification examination for persons who have acquired the qualification of a sworn auditor and to postpone the entry into force of the provisions concerning the right to engage independently in the internal auditor’s professional activities and to perform the sworn auditor’s professional assurance functions or to provide the auditor’s assurance services in a public sector entity, in order to ensure a sufficient transition period for implementation of the provisions of the National Audit Office Act and the Authorised Public Accountants Act. The amendments are necessary because preparing of the professional examination of experts in accountancy has taken significantly longer than originally anticipated upon establishing of the relevant regulation. The regulation provided in the Bill has received the approval of the Board of Auditors. The Bill was sent to the third reading.

On the motion of the Rural Affairs Committee, the first reading of the Bill on Amendments to the European Union Common Agricultural Policy Implementation Act and the Administrative Co-operation Act (72 SE), initiated by the Government, was concluded. The purpose of the Bill is to specify the Act which entered into force on 1 January 2010 and to bring it into conformity with European Union law. The Act is amended by adding provisions which aim to ensure implementation of the LEADER measure according to the objectives of the measure and to create opportunities for better and more purposeful use of the funding allocated for the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. The references to European Union legislation in the provisions of the Act are also amended because the Regulations referred to have been amended or replaced by new ones. One of the aims of the Act is to regulate also the issues connected with the financing of the activities before expenses are incurred from the state budget. The Bill was sent to the second reading.
