ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the revised Model Regulation Requiring Annual Audited Financial Reports, known as Model Audit Rule (MAR), in the U.S. The rule, which is one of the provisions in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) to be implemented in 2010, includes best-practice corporate governance standards. It requires insurers to have formal audit committees that meet with their external auditors. It also emphasizes the importance of enterprise risk management and strong project management.
