.04

Interpretation—Section 336, Using the Work of a Specialist, paragraph .06, states that “during the audit...an auditor may encounter complex or subjective matters potentially material to the financial statements. Such matters may require special skill or knowledge and in the auditor’s judgment require using the work of a specialist to obtain competent evidential matter.”
