The Trustees of the IFRS Foundation have confirmed the appointment and re-appointment of several organisations and representatives to the IFRS Advisory Council. The appointments take effect from 1 January 2022 for a three-year period.
The Advisory Council’s Chair, Bill Coen, has also been re-appointed, effective for three years from 1 February 2022.
Historically, the Advisory Council has advised the IFRS Foundation Trustees and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) on strategic matters. When the formation of the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) was announced earlier in November, it was also announced that the remit and expertise of the IFRS Advisory Council will be extended to provide strategic advice to the ISSB.
The Advisory Council consists of representatives from over 50 groups affected by and interested in international financial reporting, including academics, analysts, auditors, investors, preparers, professional accounting bodies, regulators and standard-setters. With the exception of individual appointments, the Advisory Council membership is held by the organisation concerned.
