Planned detection risk: (PDR) Is the risk that audit evidence for a segment will fail to detect misstatements exceeding tolerable misstatement. Depend on other 3 factors in the model Will change only if auditor changes one of the other risk model factors Determines amount of substantive evidence that the auditor plans to accumulate, inversely with size PDR If PDR reduced, more evidence needed to achieve the reduced planned risk 2.
