The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board
(PCAOB) plans to hold an open meeting next week to consider
proposed standards on related parties, significant unusual
transactions, and conforming.

The PCAOB said it will also consider proposing
for public comment amendments to its rules and forms that would
align them with the requirements of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street
Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

This would authorise the PCAOB to oversee
exemption reports of broker-dealers proposed by the US Securities
and Exchange Commission as part of its amendments to the
broker-dealer financial reporting rule.
