The ASB has discussed the Oct. 1, 2020 effective for ASOP No. 56, Modeling. In light of the importance of this standard, the Board believes that there is sufficient lead time between now and the effective date of the ASOP and that an extension of the effective date is not now in the best interest of the profession or the public. Should circumstances warrant, the Board is free under its Rules of Procedure to reconsider that conclusion, but sees no need at this time to alter the effective date.
