International Accounting Standards Board appoints new Chair and Vice-Chair to Islamic Finance Consultative Group

 25 August 2016


The International Accounting Standards Board (the Board) has announced the appointment of Mohammad Faiz Azmi as Chair and Martin Edelmann as Vice-Chair of the Islamic Finance Consultative Group.

Mohammad Faiz Azmi is the Executive Chairman of PwC Malaysia, and has previously served as the Chairman of the Malaysian Accounting Standards Board. He has been a member of the Islamic Finance Consultative Group since it was established. Martin Edelmann is a member of the International Accounting Standards Board.

The Islamic Finance Consultative Group, formerly the Consultative Group on Shariah-Compliant Instruments and Transactions, is an advisory group to the Board focussing on challenges that may arise when IFRS Standards are applied to Islamic financial instruments and transactions.

The group was established in 2013, following the Board’s first Agenda Consultation on which topics to include in its technical work plan. It has met three times and in February 2016 a paper on the group’s discussions to date was published, focussing on the application of the classification and measurement requirements of the new financial instruments Standard, IFRS 9.
