Just as there is some convergence of U.S. accounting standards (GAAP) with international standards (IFRS), a convergence of U.S. professional ethics standards (AICPA Code of Professional Conduct) with the international Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants is beginning to emerge. This workshop compares the two sets of ethics standards, emphasizing both the theoretical aspects and practical implications for today's accounting professionals.
