Ethique et indépendance interne : une nouvelle dimension de l'indépendance de l'auditeur légal
This research presents a new dimension of the auditor independence: the internal independence. Research has focused on clients and market pressures as kinds of external independence. This postulates that the organizational structure of legal audit is perfectly efficient and able to define and set up the requirements for quality of audits. Based on psychological and ethical decision researches, we present an experience for two categories of legal auditors. The results show that the auditor is dependent on his peers, leading him to take decisions incompliant with rules. The concept of internal independence is discussed.
