At September 28 Open Meeting, PCAOB to Consider Request for Additional Comment on Proposed New Requirements for the Lead Auditor’s Use of Other Auditors

Washington, Sep. 22, 2021

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) will hold an open meeting on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. ET.

At the meeting, the Board will consider issuing a second supplemental request for comment on the PCAOB’s proposal to strengthen requirements that apply to audits involving accounting firms and individual accountants that are outside the accounting firm that issues the auditor’s report. The Board proposed new requirements in 2016 and issued a supplemental request for comment on the proposal in 2017. This second supplemental request for comment would seek input on revisions to the proposal.
