In almost all countries in Europe and around the world, institutions are responsible for the external audit of public finances and in charge of missions comparable to those of the Belgian Court of Audit. These institutions have developed cooperation relations at international level.
The Belgian Court of Audit complies with the standards for public audit by courts of auditors, both at the organizational level and at the level of individual audits. These standards have been developed within INTOSAI, the international organization of supreme audit institutions.
