IASB launches second agenda consultation on its future work program

Aug 11, 2015

On August 11, 2015, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) launched its second public consultation to seek broad public input on the strategic direction and overall balance of its future work program.

The IASB Chairman Hans Hoogervorst notes that the agenda consultation is linked to the review of the structure and effectiveness of the organisation by the Trustees of the IFRS Foundation launched in July 2015.

The scope of the 2015 agenda consultation, which covers the IASB's work program from mid-2016 to mid-2020, is limited by the expected level of standard-setting activity during that period. The IASB concludes that the 2015 agenda consultation process is constrained by both the capacity of the IASB to take on additional technical projects and by the stakeholders' ability to deal with the change that results from standard-setting activities. Comments on the consultation document are required by December 31, 2015.
