The CPA peer review process typically covers three essential areas:

  1. review of all organizational or functional levels within the firm
  2. review of selected engagement working paper files and reports
  3. review of documentation indicating the firm’s compliance with membership requirements

Upon completion of the CPA peer review, the reviewer discusses the findings with the reviewee and issues a detailed report. If the results of the CPA peer review process reveal any areas of non-compliance or quality control deficiency, a number of sanctions may be imposed by the AICPA, including:
