The Securities and Exchange Commission has bared the agenda and panelists for the inaugural public roundtable of the Financial Reporting Series on November 8.

The roundtable entitled “Measurement Uncertainty in Financial Reporting” – announced last month – will feature three panels discussing the extent to which financial reporting should include measurement uncertainties, and the information that investors find important to understanding and assessing those uncertainties.

SEC Chief Accountant James Kroeker, PCAOB chairperson James Doty,and FASB board member Marc Siegel will deliver their remarks before the start of the roundtable proper.

The SEC staff has previously prepared a briefing paper highlighting the issues to be considered at the roundtable discussion.

The roundtable will begin at 10 a.m. in the multi-purpose room at the SEC’s Washington D.C. headquarters with public seating on a first-come, first-served basis. The event also will be viewable by live webcast on the SEC website, and will be archived for later viewing.

Kroeker and SECs’ deputy chief accountant Mike Starr will sit as moderators.

Members of the public who wish to provide their views on the matters to be considered at the roundtable discussion may submit comments to rule-comments@sec.gov and include File Number 4-640 on the subject line.

The public may also send paper submissions in triplicate to Elizabeth M. Murphy, Secretary, Securities and Exchange Commission, 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20549-1090, and refer to File Number 4-640.
