The Trustees of the IFRS® Foundation invite applications from suitable candidates to serve on the IFRS Interpretations Committee (Interpretations Committee).

All applicants will be comprehensively considered. However, based on the skills, experience and background of outgoing member(s) and the overall balance of the Interpretations Committee, the following attributes would be of specific interest:

  • a strong preparer background; and
  • direct and relevant experience in the application of IFRS Accounting Standards.

The Interpretations Committee is the interpretative body of the International Accounting Standards Board. It consists of 14 voting members and a non-voting chair. The role of the Interpretations Committee is to address questions about the application of IFRS Accounting Standards to support consistent application.

When considering candidates, Trustees will consider individuals from all regions (Africa, the Americas, Asia-Oceania and Europe) who:

  • have a high level of technical expertise;
  • add to the diversity of the Interpretations Committee in terms of international business and market experience;
  • have market experience in the practical application of IFRS Accounting Standards and analysis of financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS Accounting Standards; and
  • can serve in an individual capacity and demonstrate their independence.

Following interviews, which are expected to take place in April/May, successful candidates will be appointed to serve a term that will begin on 1 July 2022 and that will expire on 30 June 2025. The term may be renewed for a further three years. Members are expected to attend, in London, up to six two-day meetings each year. Membership is unpaid, but the IFRS Foundation meets members’ reasonable travel and accommodation expenses incurred for Interpretations Committee business.

Closing date for applications: 8 April 2022

Please refer to the criteria and indicate interest by sending a cover letter and curriculum vitae by 8 April 2022 to: Michel Madelain, Chair of the Nominating Committee, c/o: Monique Akin makin@ifrs.org
