Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) 

The Professional Ethics Executive Committee is a senior committee of the AICPA charged with interpreting and enforcing the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct and for promulgating new interpretations and rulings, and for monitoring those rules and making revisions as needed.

The Professional Ethics Executive Committee generally meets quarterly for two days. A portion of each meeting is devoted to standard-setting activities, which are open to the public, and to case investigation and other enforcement matters, which are closed to the public due to confidentiality requirements.
