Effects Analysis Consultative Group


Effects Analysis Consultative Group


In their February 2012 report Strategy Review 2011, the Trustees of the IFRS Foundation recommended the establishment of a working group from the international community, to be chaired by the IASB, to develop an agreed methodology for fieldwork (including field testing and visits) and effect analyses. In that report, the Trustees noted that fieldwork and effect analyses are now considered best practice in the establishment of regulations. These activities form a regular part of the IASB’s standard-setting activity. However, the Trustees believe that the IASB should better define how such activities are carried out by bringing together an external group to help the IASB develop an agreed methodology.

A primary objective of the Effects Analysis Consultative Group is to address the following two questions:

  • Are the IASB’s processes for considering and communicating the likely effects of the new financial reporting requirements meeting the needs of investors, preparers, auditors and securities regulators?
  • Are the needs of those users and the needs of the broader regulatory community aligned? If they are not, what additional information do these regulators need, and what is the IASB’s role in helping them get that information?
