The PCAOB are mindful of the many challenges related to COVID-19 that stakeholders are dealing with at this time. To provide additional time for interested parties to share feedback, they extended the comment period from 30 to 60 days. Comments are requested by June 15, 2020.

Additional information on their interim analysis and specific questions for consideration are detailed in the Request for Comment.
