Conclusions of the July 2010 meeting of the IFRS Foundation Trustees
Aug 06, 2010
The Trustees of the IFRS Foundation, the body responsible for the promotion of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) and oversight of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), today announced the conclusions of their meeting in Washington, DC on 6 and 7 July 2010.
The Trustees received reports from the chairmen of the IASB, the IFRS Advisory Council and the Due Process Oversight Committee. They also discussed their strategic review:
After ten years of existence and with the number of countries adopting IFRSs growing, the Trustees agreed that it is an opportune moment to consider the organisation's strategy looking out over a ten-year time horizon. The Trustees' Executive Committee, led by the incoming Trustee Chair Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa, will lead the review on behalf of the Trustees. The review will consider the scope and mission of the IFRS Foundation, governance arrangements, the effectiveness of the standard-setting process and financing arrangements
