Working with its members, the CAQ formulates and advances positions on pressing policy issues facing the public company auditing profession and the capital markets. The CAQ's policy work is accomplished through continual engagement with policymakers and regulatory bodies at home and overseas. Areas of interest include regulation of public company auditors; accounting standards; efforts to enhance auditor independence, objectivity, and skepticism; and corporate governance. The CAQ conveys the profession's policy views through a number of channels, including comment letters, amicus briefs, meetings with policymakers, and white papers and other thought leadership.
