Interprétativisme et complexité des normes d'audit françaises
In a decision from the AMF's commission of sanctions in December 2009, the fact that French Audit Standard "NEP 320"can be interpreted has been retained to justify a lack of sanction for auditors who committed a judgmental error. This article aims to demonstrate that the audit standards' process during the task audit is not a positive one. As a consequence, the possibility to interpret and the constructivism of French audit standards are factors of the task complexity audit which influence the performance of audit judgments. Audit is not a positive theory.
