 U.S. generally accepted accounting principles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) are the accounting rules used to prepare financial statements for publicly traded companies and many private companies in the United States.
In the United States, as well as in other countries practicing under the English common law system, the government does not set accounting standards, in the belief that the private sector has better knowledge and resources.
The GAAP is not written in law, although the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) requires that it be followed in financial reporting by publicly traded companies.

 FASB: GAAP Hierarchy
In that document, the Board stated that creating two levels of literature (authoritative and nonauthoritative) and elevating the conceptual framework within the generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) hierarchy are key elements of the Board’s goal of improving the quality of the GAAP hierarchy and, therefore, the quality and transparency of standards and the standard-setting process.
The first steps towards improving the GAAP hierarchy are to move the hierarchy from the auditing literature to FASB literature and to expand the sources of category (a) to include accounting principles that are issued after being subject to the FASB’s due process.
The SAS 69 GAAP hierarchy generally establishes authority depending on the entity issuing the literature and the extent to which the literature is subject to due process.
