A Peek Around Construction


So we felt it was time to get a better handle and better appreciation of what in our stakeholders’ view was important to receive information on. Q: How does Canada compare right now, in terms of disclosure? Do you give the same level of disclosure as that of your international counterparts? This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below. A: It’s the same in some areas, it’s less than some and it’s more than others. For example, we’re one of the few that provide very specific information to audit committee chairs. What we don’t do is provide the inspection results publicly about each audit firm. So our annual report, for example, will group firms together and say these are the results and the number of significant findings in this group of firms, but it doesn’t name each of the individual ones. And so that’s one of the protocols that we are consulting on. Q: Some of your global counterparts, though, do name those firms, the audit firms, and disclose their findings on audit quality. A:In the U.S., there’s the ability for individuals to go on to the website of the PCAOB and see a particular firm and their work and the nature of those findings. This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below. Q: And I understand the United Kingdom is looking at an even greater level of disclosure, including considering whether the names and details of public companies should be included. Did that lead to some of the reconsiderations in other jurisdictions, such as Canada? A:The concept in the U.K. has brought some level of interest as to whether that additional information would be useful to the investing public. Q: What’s behind this push for more disclosure? A: There’s a number of factors that have been cited by different stakeholders as to why additional information would be useful.

Czap/IAEA) The IAEA and the World Health Organization (WHO) have rolled out a new type of dosimetry audit as a cost-free service to radiotherapy centres around the world to support hospitals in tackling the growing cancer burden. Since its launch in 1969, the IAEA/WHO audit service has been limited to checking high-energy photon beams, while the number of medical linear accelerators, or linacs, capable of delivering both photon and electron radiation beams has been steadily increasing. According to the IAEA DIrectory of RAdiotherapy Centres (DIRAC), about half of radiotherapy treatment units installed globally since 2010 can produce clinical electron beams. These beams are commonly used for treating anatomical sites close to the patient’s surface, such as skin lesions or tumour beds after surgery. The new electron beam audit service will help to ensure that such treatments are performed safely and effectively. Quality assurance programmes for radiotherapy processes are established to guarantee that the dose delivered to the target inside a patient undergoing radiotherapy is correct. Too high dose of radiation can be harmful to surrounding healthy organs, while a dose that is too low may not be efficient in killing cancer cells. Verifying the calibration of the treatment unit is the cornerstone of radiotherapy quality assurance, and external dosimetry audits have been widely recognized as an invaluable tool for quality control of the calibration and are mandatory in some countries. “I have participated in the IAEA external audit for photon beams for decades. The addition of the electron beam to the service is a great step,” said Paola Alvarez from the Imaging and Radiation Oncology Core (IROC), Houston Quality Assurance Center, MD Anderson Cancer Center, USA, a member of the Dosimetry Audit Network. “The audit is performed in the same way as the beam calibration which makes the irradiation of the detectors fast and simple.” The IAEA/WHO provides an external dosimetry audit service using special dosimeters shipped to participating hospitals, and the dosimeters are then irradiated in typical radiation treatment conditions at the hospital to a specified dose. The dosimeters are then sent back for evaluation to the IAEA to compare the actual dose the dosimeter was exposed to with the dose that was planned. Results within 5% of the target are considered acceptable, while any larger deviations are followed up by the IAEA dosimetry audit team.
