The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board today announced the new members of its Standing Advisory Group(SAG), and my name was on the list. The SAG was created to advise the PCAOB on the development of auditing and related professional practice standards. The SAG includes auditors, investors, public company executives and others.
I will be the only foreign based member of the SAG. My main area of interest is transnational regulation of accounting, and in particular the challenges that face the PCAOB with respect to U.S. listed Chinese companies.
I will continue to write about issues related to the PCAOB in this blog. My writings reflect my personal opinions and do not represent the views of the SAG or the PCAOB.
