Abstract: Straipsnyje privalomas Lietuvos buhalterių kvalifikacijos egzaminavimas vertinamas trimis aspektais: kiek privalomas buhalterių egzaminavimas yra paplitęs kitose ES šalyse, ar rinkoje egzistuoja kitos kvalifikacijos patvirtinimo alternatyvos bei kaip esamą reikalavimą vertina Lietuvos apskaitos rinkos ekspertai. Tyrimo rezultatai rodo, kad privalomas Lietuvos buhalterių kvalifikacijos egzaminavimas nėra pagrįstas nei vienu iš analizuotų aspektų. Lietuvos apskaitos rinkai labiau tinkama būtų rinkos savireguliacijos alternatyva
