Getting SOX Right

by Toby Lucich on May 23, 2007

Recent talk of overhauling accounting regulations has the potential to turn the business world upside down.

Last week, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke argued in favor of the U.S. developing a U.K.-style, principles-based, risk-focused approach in its financial market regulation. This comes only a few weeks after the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Christopher Cox, said the U.S. and Europe should be able to achieve a single accounting standard by 2009. But perhaps more urgent, on Wednesday the SEC is expected to release its final guidance to management for implementing Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

The SEC is certainly keeping busy, but is it taking the right approach?
