On March 28, 2019, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has issued two notices of filing in which it announces that it has opened the comment periods for the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB)’s proposed rules on (i) auditing accounting estimates, including fair value measurements, and amendments to PCAOB auditing standards and (ii) amendments to auditing standards on the auditor’s use of the work of specialists.

Comments on both releases are due 21 days after the date of their publication in the Federal Register. For more information, see the notices of filing on the PCAOB’s proposed rules on auditing accounting estimates and use of specialists on the SEC’s website.
