The IFRS Foundation is a not-for-profit, public interest organisation established to develop high-quality, understandable, enforceable and globally accepted accounting and sustainability disclosure standards.
Our Standards are developed by our two standard-setting boards, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB).
Why have global accounting and sustainability standards? What benefits do they bring to the world economy?

What do we do once we’ve issued a Standard? We undertake various activities to support the consistent application of IFRS Standards, which includes implementation support for recently issued Standards. We do this because the quality of implementation and application of the Standards affects the benefits that investors receive from having a single set of global standards.
The work plan includes all projects undertaken by the IFRS Foundation Trustees, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) and the IFRS Interpretations Committee. Public consultations are a key part of all our projects and are indicated on the work plan.

On 3 November 2021, at COP26, the IFRS Foundation Trustees announced the creation of the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB).
On 26 June 2023 the ISSB issued its inaugural standards—IFRS S1 and IFRS S2—ushering in a new era of sustainability-related disclosures in capital markets worldwide.
The International Accounting Standards Board (the Board) has issued a request for stakeholders to tell the Board about their experience with the accounting standard that explains how to measure the ‘fair value’ of assets and liabilities, IFRS 13. The aim is to check whether the Standard meets its objectives.
This request is part of the Board’s Post-implementation Review (PIR) of IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement. The objective of a PIR is to assess whether an accounting standard works as intended and achieves its objectives. This assessment involves analysing how the requirements in the standard affect investors, companies and auditors. The PIR also helps detect areas of a standard that may present challenges that could result in inconsistent application of the requirements.
The PIR of IFRS 13 consists of two phases. In the first phase, the Board identified topics for further analysis in the second phase. The second phase starts with a Request for Information (RFI) published today, and focuses on:
In addition, this RFI explores whether there is a need for further guidance on measuring the fair value of biological assets and unquoted equity instruments.
IFRS 13 defines fair value and sets out, in a single IFRS Standard, how fair value should be measured and which disclosures are required about fair value measurements. The Standard was issued in May 2011 and became effective from 1 January 2013.
Deadline for submission: 22 September 2017
