Auditing Standards Board

    Auditing Standards Board 

    The Auditing Standards Board (ASB) is the AICPA’s senior committee for auditing, attestation, and quality control applicable to the performance and issuance of audit and attestation reports for non issuers. Its mission is to serve the public interest by developing, updating and communicating comprehensive standards and practice guidance that enable practitioners to provide high-quality, objective audit and attestation services to nonissuers in an effective and efficient manner.

    With the issuance of SAS Nos. 122-126, the Auditing Standards Board has substantially completed  its Clarity Project, undertaken to make U.S. GAAS easier to read, understand, and apply. The ASB undertook this project to redraft all of the auditing sections in Codification of Statements on Auditing Standards, apply the clarity drafting conventions, and converge the material with the ISAs.

    The Auditing Standards Board promulgates Statements on Auditing Standards (SAS), Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) and Statements on Quality Control Standards (SQCS), and, as a part of its due process, releases Exposure Drafts of proposed standards. The AICPA also issues interpretive and other publications to assist practitioners in understanding and applying the standards.
