It includes the 1975 ABA Policy Statement Regarding Lawyers’ Responses to Auditors’ Requests for Information, AICPA and PCAOB auditing standards, and interpretations issued over the years. The handbook was prepared under the auspices of the Audit Responses Committee of the Business Law Section, of which your blog host is Vice Chair and incoming Chair.
