Investor protection lies at the heart of the PCAOB’s statutory mission. We accomplish that mission by promoting high-quality audits through our standard-setting, inspections, and enforcement programs. As part of our mission, we also aim to provide relevant information to investors and to engage with them on PCAOB activities that may be of interest.
Investor Advisory Group
The Investor Advisory Group has been established by the PCAOB to advise on matters concerning the PCAOB's mission,
including investors' perspectives on key areas of concern and potential emerging issues related to the PCAOB's oversight activities.
Through AuditorSearch, investors may access the names of engagement partners and other accounting firms participating in audits of U.S. public companies by searching the database or downloading the entire data set.
