The Trustees of the IFRS Foundation, the oversight body of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), has issued this first-stage consultation document designed to solicit input on the strategy of the IFRS Foundation as it enters its second decade. The Trustees are seeking views of stakeholders on four strategic fronts—the IFRS Foundation’s mission, governance, the standard-setting process, and financing of the IFRS Foundation.
In launching the review, the Trustees note that in the ten years since its founding, the Foundation has succeeded in establishing IFRSs as the accepted set of financial reporting standards in more than 100 countries. As the organisation’s second decade begins, the goal of a single high-quality globally accepted set of accounting standards is within reach. The objective of the review is to help the organisation to consolidate and build on these achievements and achieve its ultimate objective.
