PCAOB Creates Audit Committee Website

Blog Focus on Accounting, Audit Committees and the Law

As part of its “audit committee outreach,” the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board has added a new web page called Information for Audit Committees. The page collects in one place various PCAOB documents relating to audit committees, including statements about its inspection process and findings, its new auditing standard on audit committee communications, and relevant speeches by board and staff members. As in the past, the Board emphasizes its commitment to “constructive engagement with audit committees in areas of common interest, including auditor independence and audit quality.”
