4120.1 The SEC will not recognize any person as a certified public accountant unless duly registered (licensed to practice) and in good standing under the laws of the place of the accountant's residence or principal office. [S-X 2-01(a)] However, S-X 2-01(a) does not affect the applicability of any other registration, licensing or qualification requirements that may apply in any State or competent jurisdiction.
4120.2 The staff may question the location from which the audit report was rendered if there does not appear to be a logical relationship between that location and the location of the registrant's corporate offices, its principal operations, its principal assets, or where the audit work was principally conducted. The staff will consider all relevant factors in questioning the location from which the audit report was rendered.
4120.3 An auditor whose report is included in a domestic registrant's filings should be an expert in U.S. GAAP and the standards of the PCAOB (U.S. GAAS for non-issuers).
