Institute Proposes Auditing Standards Changes to PCAOB


In response to a Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) request for comments (PCAOB release no. 2003-05), the auditing standards board recommended amendments to standards included in the PCAOB’s interim professional auditing standards ( http://cpcaf.aicpa.org/Resources/Sarbanes+Oxley/Archive+-+AICPA+Submits+Recommendations+on+Auditing+Standards+to+PCAOB.htm ). The ASB also proposed issuance of a new auditing standard, Retention of Records Relevant to Audits and Reviews and Strengthening the Commission’s Requirements Regarding Auditor Independence, to reflect certain provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and SEC rules.
