SEC proposes to codify certain consultations and modernize auditor independence rules

Dec 30, 2019

On December 30, 2019, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that it is proposing amendments to codify certain staff consultations and modernize certain aspects of its auditor independence framework.

The proposed amendments would update select aspects of the nearly two-decade-old auditor independence rule set to more effectively structure the independence rules and analysis so that relationships and services that would not pose threats to an auditor’s objectivity and impartiality do not trigger non-substantive rule breaches or potentially time consuming audit committee review of non-substantive matters.

Review the press release and proposed amendments on the SEC's website.
