Between June 2009 and September 2009, Deloitte carried out an external quality assessment of the Court's Internal Audit Service at the request of the Head of Internal Audit, with a view to complying with the Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing of the Institute of Internal Auditors (llA). On the basis of that work, the Internal Audit Service has been certified as conforming to international internal audit standards (IIA), and in particular Standard 1312. This certification was delivered to Mr Helder Faria Viegas, the Court's Internal Auditor, on 2 December 2009, by Mr Laurent Berliner, partner of Deloitte SA.

The Treaty of Lisbon enters into force today 1 December 2009
The Treaty of Lisbon introduces considerable changes in the Union’s institutional framework and in its activities. However, the Treaty does not modify substantially the provisions concerning the Court’s structure, functioning and role.
The possible impact of the new drafting of Article 317 TFEU (which states: “The Commission shall implement the budget in cooperation with Member States…on its own responsibility”) will be considered by the Court.
Provisions of the Treaty of Lisbon concerning the European Court of Auditors and its activity
Article 13 of the TEU states explicitly that the Court is one of the Union’s institutions. The provisions relating to Court are set out in the TFEU, which also contains detailed provisions on the other institutions. The rules concerning the Court are laid down in Articles 285 to 287 TFEU (ex Articles 246 to 248 TEC).
