  4. 4. A Rule change was necessary for a few states because the Auditing Standards Board moved certain services (primarily "Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization") from SAS 70 into SSAE 16. Depending on the wording of the state’s law, that might have resulted in the unintended lessening of public protection and endangering mobility by omitting certain important services related to auditing from the definition of “attest.” <br />Rule 3-1(c) For purposes of the definition of "attest" as provided in Section 3(b)(1) of the Act, the Board adopts and incorporates by reference the AICPA’s Statements on Auditing Standards (SAS) as they existed as of [insert either the effective date of your state’s legislation adopting the current definition of "attest," or a date after 1997 and before June 15, 2011]. <br />Emergency Rule Change<br />
  5. 5. To avoid additional last-minute changes, a task force has been formed to develop a definition of “attest” to be added to the Uniform Accountancy Act.<br />The results of the task force’s work will be reviewed by NASBA/AICPA UAA Committee and recommendations made to the Boards of Directors of NASBA and the AICPA. <br />“Attest” Definition<br />
