Mary Schapiro, chairman of the US Securities and Exchanges Commission has met with Financial Reporting Council chief executive Stephen Haddrill to discuss trans-Atlantic regulation, including audit issues.

She also met with Financial Services Authority Chairman Adair Turner.
“Given the international nature of the recent financial crisis, this exchange of views can only improve the regulatory solutions we develop to these challenging problems,” she said.
