What we do:
To protect the interest of the public and enhance the investor  confidence in Namibia through the provision of regulatory oversight of the public accounting and auditing profession in accordance with internationally recognised standards and processes.

The Public Accountants’ and Auditors’ Board (PAAB) is established in terms of the Public Accountants’ and Auditors’ Act, (No 51 of 1951) as amended.  

The  Board is a statutory board regulating that part of the accountancy profession engaged in public practice (audit work in Namibia) and it functions in terms of the PAA Act (No 51 of 1951).


The PAAB is governed by the Public Accountants’ and Auditors’ Act 51 of 1951 as amended.  The PAAB Board consists of 10 Members, the Chair of which is the current Auditor General, Mr Junias Kandjeke. All Board members are appointed by the Minister.

Our objective:

The manner in which this should be achieved will be through the PAAB’s mission:
