These interpretations impact the "Integrity and Objectivity Rule" (ET §§1.100.001 and 2.100.001) of the Code and establish the responsibilities of accountants, both for members in business and those in public practice, when encountering actual or suspected noncompliance with laws and regulations (NOCLAR).
