At the heart of every SEC-registered entity's audit lies a set of guiding principles and rules established by the PCAOB. The PCAOB Auditing Standards and Rules are not just formalities; they are the benchmarks against which the performance of accounting firms is measured during each audit engagement. It's about ensuring integrity, transparency, and excellence in financial audits - values we all hold dear.


For over two decades, the PCAOB has been refining these PCAOB Auditing Standards, creating a codified system that integrates twenty years of dedication to clarity and precision in SEC financial audits. This effort is not arbitrary; it's mandated under Section 103 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, requiring the PCAOB to set forth standards in auditing, quality control, ethics, independence, and more. It's about laying down the foundations upon which trustworthy audit reports for public companies can be built. The PCAOB inspection process looks at how each firm applies the PCAOB Auditing Standards to their audit work as documented in the audit workpapers.


In our upcoming CPE event, we'll take a closer look at the essentials:

  • Rules of the Board
  • PCAOB Related Rules
  • PCAOB Auditing Standards
  • Ethics & Independence Rules
