The AICPA’s Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) has issued an updated proposal around reporting noncompliance with laws and regulations (NOCLAR). Originally issued in 2017, PEEC has been trying to converge with the international standards while addressing unique U.S. issues. The proposal includes separating the requirements for those in public practice between those providing attest services and those providing services that are not attest services. It also provides other clarifications in response to the comment letters received in the first proposal.

Call to Action: Do you agree with the proposed changes to the ethics code? Comments are due June 30.
