Action Summary The Virginia Board of Accountancy has not made significant revisions to 18VAC5-22 since their adoption in 2010.

The intent of this planned regulatory action is to explore amendments to the regulations, in order to ensure the regulations (i) are protective of public health, safety, and welfare; (ii) address changes in statutes, and professional standards; and (iii) clarify and codify longstanding agency policies.
