What are the requirements concerning integrity and objectivity?

When offering or performing services, licensees, CPA-Inactive certificate holders, nonlicensee firm owners, and employees of such persons must:
• Remain honest and objective;
• Not misrepresent facts;
• Not subordinate their judgment to others; and
• Remain free of conflicts of interest unless such conflicts are specifically permitted by board rule or professional standards listed in WAC 4-30-048.
If the language of the professional standards listed in WAC 4-30-048 differ from or conflict with specific board rules, board rules prevail.
