At June 21 Open Meeting, PCAOB to Consider Adoption of New Requirements for the Lead Auditor’s Use of Other Auditors

Washington, Jun. 14, 2022

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) will hold an open meeting on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. ET.

At the meeting, the Board will consider adopting amendments to its auditing standards to strengthen the requirements that apply to audits that involve accounting firms and individual accountants outside the accounting firm that issues the audit report on the company’s consolidated financial statements. The amendments, which have benefited from three comment solicitations, are designed to improve the quality of audits in these circumstances and to align the applicable requirements with the PCAOB’s risk-based supervisory standards.
