Standard-setters from about 60 different countries have gathered in London for the annual World Standard-setters Conference on 1 and 2 October.
This year’s conference will provide delegates with an update on the latest activities by the International Accounting Standards Board (Board), presentations and discussions about the Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting as well as panel discussions and breakout sessions on a range of the Board’s projects.
Hans Hoogervorst, Chair of the International Accounting Standards Board, said:
National standard-setters play an important role in our work; they act as our eyes and ears on the ground. Their experiences and views provide critical input both as we develop new IFRS Standards and in our work to support implementation of the Standards.
The programme for the conference together with all the agenda papers can be found here.
You can also watch a video we created explaining the importance of international collaboration in standard-setting.
