PCAOB Issues Concept Release On Auditor Independence, Including Audit Firm Rotation; Comments Due Dec. 14

Earlier today, the PCAOB voted to issue a concept release to solicit public comment on ways that auditor independence, objectivity and professional skepticism can be enhanced, including through mandatory rotation of audit firms. Comments are due Dec. 14, 2011. The action was expected, as noted here.

In related news, the PCAOB announced that a public roundtable on auditor independence and mandatory audit firm rotation will be held in March 2012.
