Members of the IASB
The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) is an independent group of 16 experts with an appropriate mix of recent practical experience in setting accounting standards, in preparing, auditing, or using financial reports, and in accounting education. Broad geographical diversity is also required.
Members are appointed by the Trustees through an open and rigorous process that includes advertising vacancies and consulting relevant organisations.
In January 2009, the Trustees voted to expand the IASB to 16 members by July 2012.
