EOC #12 Chapter 8 8-21 a. The auditor’s justification for accepting the uncertainties that are inherent in the sampling process are based upon the premise that (1) the cost of examining all of the financial data would usually outweigh the benefit of the added reliability of a complete (100%) examination and (2) the time required to examine all of the financial data would usually preclude issuance of a timely auditor’s report. b. The uncertainties inherent in applying auditing procedures are collectively referred to as audit risk. Audit risk is the risk that the auditor may unknowingly fail to appropriately modify the opinion on financial statements that are materially misstated. Audit risk can be controlled through the scope of the auditor’s test procedures with the audit risk model providing a framework to follow. Detection risk, which is a component of the audit risk model, is composed of two risks or uncertainties: sampling risk and nonsampling risk.
