The AICPA's Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) clarified, revised and codified the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct in 2014 and has made many changes since then. In this program, the Code is used as a 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 along with Connecticut Board of Accountancy laws and regulations. This course qualifies for the three-year Connecticut ethics requirement.
