Abstract: The present article addresses the professional judgment both conceptually and in terms of regulations. Philosophical approach of reasoning has been justified since Antiquity and the literature reviews help conceptualizing professional judgment. The article highlights the situations in which the main national and international regulations in the field of accounting recommend the exercise of professional judgment. At the same time, they specify the frequency of both implicit and explicit references to the professional judgment concept in the regulations issued by the supervisory institutions of the accounting profession. In the last part of this paper we summarize some essential aspects regarding the judgment of the accounting expert and of the financial auditor, too.
