Standing Advisory Group

The Board convened a Standing Advisory Group (SAG) to advise the PCAOB on the development of auditing and related professional practice standards. The SAG includes auditors, investors, public company executives, and others.

The SAG meets two or three times a year and is chaired by the PCAOB Chief Auditor and Director of Professional Standards.
