The Professional Practice Executive Committee (PPEC) provides a forum for CAQ member firms to express their views on technical and regulatory matters involving practice before the SEC and the PCAOB and advocate positions on behalf of member firms. The PPEC also strives to enhance the quality of member firms' public company audit practices through the development of technical and educational information, the communication of SEC/PCAOB developments, and the sharing of best practices. The PPEC serves as the public company auditing profession’s liaison with the SEC, PCAOB, and others to communicate member firms' views on SEC and PCAOB matters.
