    PCAOB Auditing Standard 1220 is a regulatory requirement issued by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) that outlines the standards and procedures for conducting engagement quality reviews (EQR). An EQR is an independent evaluation of the significant judgments made by the engagement team and the conclusions reached in the audit or other attestation engagements.

    The standard defines the responsibilities of the engagement quality reviewer, the requirements for documentation and communication, and the factors to consider in evaluating the effectiveness of EQR. It applies to all registered public accounting firms that perform audits or other attestation engagements for public companies, broker-dealers, or other entities subject to PCAOB oversight.

    Compliance with PCAOB Auditing Standard 1220 is essential for maintaining the quality and integrity of audit and attestation engagements. Failing to meet the requirements of the standard can result in regulatory enforcement actions, negative publicity, and damage to the reputation of the accounting firm.

    Understanding the key requirements of PCAOB Auditing Standard 1220 is critical for auditors and accounting professionals to perform effective engagement quality reviews, enhance the quality of their work, and achieve compliance with regulatory requirements.
