PCAOB Standard Setting Role: Congress has given it the responsibility for creating standards for the audits of publicly traded companies. The PCAOB has declared that the previously created practice standards (e.g., ASB’s SASs ) will function as Interim Professional Auditing Standards for audits of public companies. Monitoring Role: The Board’s goal is to ensure that audit quality is not compromised. Firms not registered are not allowed to conduct audits of public companies. Board monitoring activities include inspections of registered auditing firms (similar to peer reviews), special investigations, and disciplinary proceedings. PCAOB rules requiring reporting by registered public accounting firms were approved by the SEC on August 13, 2009 and will take effect on October 12, 2009. The rules implement a provision of the SOX and constitute the first reporting obligations imposed on registered firms by the Board.
