- Where available, includes current and prospective auditor changes for companies listed on select non-regulated EEA exchanges
EU regulations require public interest entities (which includes listed entities) to rotate their auditors at least every ten years, unless Member State-adopted extensions apply. See Article 17, Regulation (EU) No 537/2014.
