The article reports that the Financial Executives International (FEI) Committee on Corporate Reporting (CCR) has mailed a letter to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The letter addresses a series of concerns about Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Specific concerns are about the absence of a final rule specifying the range of the Section 404 Attestation. Another concern is how auditing standards will be implemented under the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).
