  • Canada Image

Dec 09, 2021

Since commencing a review of standard setting in May 2021, the Independent Review Committee on Standard Setting in Canada (IRCSS) has released its Consultation Paper for public comment. Comments are requested by February 28, 2022.

With the goal to ensure that Canadian standard setting will continue to be independent and internationally recognized, the IRCSS’ paper explores several key matters including establishing a Canadian Sustainability Standards Board; public interest considerations and responsibilities to Indigenous peoples in the development of standards; governance and oversight framework of the Canadian standard-setting system; and timeliness and responsiveness of the current accounting, auditing, and assurance standard setting processes.

Review the Consultation Paper on the IRCSS' website.
