The Compagnie Nationale des Commissaires aux Comptes (CNCC) and the ACPR have produced a guidebook (below) for auditors of the entities under the control of the ACPR. This guide prepared in October 2014 will be updated in order to take into account the abolition of the prior opinion of the ACPR on the appointment of auditors as of 01/01/2016, following article 18 of Ordinance n° 2015-1682.
