The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board plans to hold a series of meetings to discuss a proposal to require mandatory audit firm rotation, according to PCAOB chairman James Doty.

So far, the PCAOB has received over 600 comment letters on the proposal, many of them taking issue with the requirement (see Audit Firm Rotation Panned in PCAOB Comments).
