EDT Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Gary Gensler recently said that he wants to make sure public company audits are “informative, accurate and independent.” The audit profession shares this commitment and stands ready to work with the SEC and Public Company Accounting Oversight Board on measures that will continue to promote high standards of audit quality in the United States. Public company auditors serve as gatekeepers, building investors’ confidence — on both Wall Street and Main Street — that financial information disclosed by public companies is reliable. This trust-building function is in the public interest, and it is a big part of the audit profession’s mission worldwide. Two decades after Congress passed the landmark Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the corporate disclosure system is dependable and audit quality has never been higher. Among other things, SOX established that the independent audit committee is responsible for the hiring, firing and oversight of the external auditor — including the auditor’s fees and independence. SOX also created an independent regulator for the public company audit profession, the PCAOB. As just one proxy of the current state of disclosure and audit quality in the United States, financial restatements have trended down significantly. The severity of restatements has also fallen — the largest adjustment in 2019, $276 million, is the lowest in 18 years and significantly lower than the top adjustments in 2004 and 2005 of $6.3 billion and $5.2 billion, respectively. Other countries have recognized this and are currently pursuing measures to replicate the strength of the U.S. financial reporting system, including adopting SOX-like components in their own jurisdictions, such as an independent regulator for public company auditors. But improvements to audit quality over the past 20 years go beyond regulatory changes. Audit firms’ heavy investments in their people and technology have taken the consistency and depth of audits to the next level. Technologies such as artificial intelligence and data analytics have the potential to transform — and in some cases already are transforming — the way audits are conducted, further improving audit quality and effectiveness. As just one example, technology enables auditors to move away from “sampling” of the past to, in many cases, review wider and deeper swaths of information while at the same time permitting auditors to focus on those truly subjective, judgmental areas of the audit that can present the highest risk of material misstatement. It’s quantity — and quality — enabling. Despite enhancements already made to audit quality, the audit profession will never rest on its laurels.https://www.accountingtoday.com/opinion/a-shared-commitment-to-informative-accurate-and-independent-audits

In the first half of 2021, Chinese steel mills have churned out nearly 12% more crude steel compared to the same period in 2020, according to a Wood Mackenzie note. China produced a monthly record of 99.45 million tons of steel in May, though the number fell to 93.88 million tons in June, Reuters reported. The steel sector is one of the biggest polluters in China, producing around 10% to 20% of carbon emissions in the country. Beijing has targeted the industry as part of its bid to reduce carbon emissions and reach net-zero by 2060. It would involve a real slamming on of the brakes to get that down. Production is likely to be lower in the second half of the year, but pushing it below 2020 levels may be a challenge, analysts say. "It would involve a real slamming on of the brakes to get that down. We think steel output will be up around 8-9% this year," Paul Bartholomew, lead steel analyst at S&P Global Platts, told CNBC in an email on Thursday. Industry insiders who spoke at virtual forums as part of Singapore International Ferrous Week in July made similar arguments. It will be "virtually impossible" for China to produce less steel this year compared to last year, Rohan Kendall, head of iron ore research at Wood Mackenzie, said at the Singapore Iron Ore Forum. However, an executive at Chinese steelmaker Hesteel, said steel mills must pay more attention to lowering their production in order to abide by government policy, especially state-owned mills. "We have no choice (but) to obey the government's rules," Mu Guoqiang, head of steel import and export at Hesteel, said at the Fastmarkets' Singapore Steel Forum. China says it's committed to continuing production cuts in steel, and its mills in steelmaking city Tangshan have reportedly lowered output after being warned of punishments if they overproduce. But not everyone agrees that the government will have its way.

There's very strong steel demand in the country, and production is unlikely to fall in the coming months if the profitability of steel production is as good as it was in the first half of the year, Zhuang at the iron ore forum. High steel prices and high steel production (are) really just a symptom of high steel demand. head of iron ore research, Wood Mackenzie Bartholomew from S&P Global Platts said attempting to limit steel output would push up prices, and mills that are not affected by government restrictions will be encouraged to produce more. "Importantly, mills have been making decent money for much of this year … and sentiment remains generally buoyant so the industry will want to take advantage of any profits on offer by producing plenty of steel," he said. The best way to lower production would be to focus on reducing demand, though such policies may end up weakening the economy, said Bartholomew.https://www.cnbc.com/2021/08/02/china-wants-to-curb-steel-production-some-say-its-virtually-impossible.html
