Statements on Quality Control Standards 


Copyright American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Inc. Access the copyright permission information.

Statements on Quality Control Standards (SQCSs) are issued by the ASB. Firms that are enrolled in an AICPA-approved practice-monitoring program are obligated to adhere to quality control standards established by the AICPA. The AICPA's Quality Control Standards do not address the quality-control ramifications of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act nor do they address the quality control ramifications of the PCAOB standards that must be followed by auditors of issuers.

The AICPA recently launched its Enhancing Audit Quality initiative to assist practitioners in maintaining and improving audit excellence. As part of the initiative, the Institute is pleased to provide an e-version of the Practice Aid Establishing and Maintaining a System of Quality Control for a CPA Firm’s Accounting and Auditing Practice, at no charge.

These standards are current as of June 1, 2015.
