- Accounting Standards Executive Committee - AcSEC
- The former senior technical organization within the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) that determined the AICPA's technical policies related to financial reporting standards. The group is now known as the Financial Reporting Executive Committee (FinREC). FinREC is authorized to make public statements on behalf of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants without explicit consent from the AICPA's board of directors.
The Accounting Standards Executive Committee's duties have been assumed by the Financial Reporting Executive Committee (FinREC). The committee exists to create technical policies for, and to act as, the spokesbody for the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. FinREC meets four to six times per year and meetings are open to the public (except when the meeting pertains to administrative or otherwise confidential matters). FinREC is responsible for compiling letters of comments on behalf of the AICPA to external groups including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB).
