Rubio Discusses China Delisting Law With PCAOB Chair Williams

Jul 27, 2022 | Press Releases

Beijing is scrambling to comply with the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act. The law, written by U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and John Kennedy (R-LA) in 2020, requires foreign companies listed on American exchanges to comply with the same audit oversight standards as all other U.S. listed firms. 

Rubio spoke with Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) Chair Erica Williams regarding the refusal of Chinese firms to provide access to independent auditors.

  • “We need to protect American retirees. If Chinese companies listed on our exchanges do not open their books, then they will be delisted. That is the law, without exception.
  • “I appreciate PCAOB Chair Williams’ commitment to protecting American investors, and I’ll continue working with her to fully implement and enforce my Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act.” — Senator Rubio
