IMPACT 102: Revised AICPA Code Issued

The revised AICPA Code of Professional Conduct (AICPA Code) will be effective December 15, 2014 (early implementation permitted). The new conceptual frameworks and related interpretations will be effective December 15, 2015.

The revised Code was adopted by Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) on January 28, 2014.
