At March 28 Open Meeting, PCAOB to Consider Proposal to Modernize PCAOB Standards Addressing Core Auditing Responsibilities

Washington, DC, Mar. 21, 2023

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) will hold an open meeting on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. ET.

At the meeting, the Board will consider issuing for public comment a proposal for a new auditing standard, AS 1000, General Responsibilities of the Auditor in Conducting an Audit. If adopted, AS 1000 would reorganize and consolidate a group of standards that were adopted on an interim basis by the PCAOB in April 2003 and that address core principles and responsibilities of the auditor, such as due professional care and professional skepticism.
