Ethics


The AICPA Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) adopted two ethics rulings that provide guidance on how members’ offer or acceptance of gifts or entertainment to or from clients, customers or vendors of their employer affects the members’ independence and objectivity ( www.aicpa.org/download/ethics/ ). The ethics rulings under Rule 101, “Independence,” and Rule 102, “Integrity and Objectivity,” took effect January 31, 2006 (see Official Releases, JofA , Jan.06, page 99).
