Why we work with the accounting profession

The accountancy profession promotes, develops and supports accountants worldwide. Their role is crucial in protecting the quality and integrity of accountants who are core to the rigorous application of the Standards.

We benefit from working with the profession in a number of ways:

  • their education of accountants in the application of the Standards;
  • receiving feedback at all stages during the standard-setting process; and
  • organising joint conferences and other events.

The profession benefits from working with us through:

  • access to materials and resources about the Standards;
  • input to the standard-setting process; and
  • conferences and events—and by having speakers from the IFRS Foundation participate at their own events to educate members.
