The CAQ seeks to improve the reliability of public company audits and to enhance their relevance for investors, particularly in this time of growing financial complexity and globalization. The CAQ is dedicated to helping increase public confidence in the auditing process and to maintaining high standards in the accounting profession. To fulfill its mission, the CAQ offers recommendations to policymakers, issues technical support for public company auditing professionals, and participates in the public discussion about financial reporting. For example, among many other recent activities, the CAQ has filed amicus briefs in cases concerning the unconstitutionality of statutory provisions for removal of members of the PCAOB; the confidentiality of documents, communications, and information regarding or relating to a PCAOB inspection; and the distinction between primary and secondary liability under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
