New CCH Newsletter Tracks Public Company Accounting Oversight Board Actions

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., April 28, 2003) – With the audit of public companies now subject to the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), CCH Washington Service Bureau has created the PCAOB Reporter, a comprehensive, detailed review of the latest news and events shaping the public company accounting profession. The PCAOB Reporter allows public accountants and public company legal advisors to stay on top of emerging developments at this new private oversight organization created by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. ($300. For more information or to order, call 800-955-5219 or 202-312-6600.)

"The PCAOB’s actions will have a profound effect on the accounting practices at companies traded in U.S. securities markets," said Hugh Kennedy, publisher of CCH Washington Service Bureau.

PCAOB Reporter distills the vast amount of information in the field, getting its readers quickly up to speed on the latest and most important developments. PCAOB Reporter provides succinct, expert coverage of meetings, board members’ and commissioners’ views on important policy matters and industry viewpoints expressed in comment letters. In addition, PCAOB Reporter brings together detailed reports on related SEC/industry initiatives, including actions and policy pronouncements of the AICPA, FASB and others.

For example, the first issue of PCAOB Reporter includes stories on a PCAOB-sponsored roundtable on the registration and oversight of non-U.S. public accounting firms, on the Board’s first rulemaking proposals regarding support fees and registration rules, on SEC actions relating to the Board and congressional comment about the Board and the issues before it.

Published 24 times a year, PCAOB Reporter provides this vital information in a concise, easy-to-read newsletter, available in print and online. As an added bonus, online subscribers receive e-mail updates detailing fast-breaking regulation and policy initiatives. To keep entire organizations up-to-date, there are economical site licensing options that can bring this must-have information to every desktop in a practice group.
