The US Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) announced that it will host its third public meeting on ways to enhance auditor independence, objectivity, and professional skepticism, including through mandatory rotation, or term limits, for audit firms. The meeting will be held Thursday 18 October 2012, in Houston, Texas at 8:30 a.m.

The Houston meeting will consist of panel discussions, during which panelists will be invited to present their views on the matters raised in the concept release and board members will have the opportunity to ask panelists follow-up questions. The schedule and list of panelists will be made available closer to the meeting date.

Webcasts from the first two  public meetings held in March and June are available on the PCAOB's website.
