The AICPA's Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) clarified, revised, and codified the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct in 2014. There have been many changes since then. In this program, we will use the Code as our basis for discussing regulatory ethics. The program will address ethics rules applicable to CPAs in public practice, those in business, and others. Recent changes, interpretations, and non-authoritative guidance issued by PEEC will be discussed.
