The California Board of Accountancy's Committee on Professional Conduct recommended that the CBA consider requiring all California CPA candidates to complete a minimum number of attest hours prior to licensing.

The committee also is asking that the requirement be reviewed to determine whether or not SOX compliance work should be allowed for qualifying experience.
