The International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB) has released for public exposure a proposed revision of International Education Standard (IES) 6, Assessment of Professional Competence.

The exposure draft proposes to extend the existing requirements of IES 6, which currently prescribes the requirements for a final assessment of a candidate's professional capabilities and competence before qualification. The proposals address elements that are considered essential to assessing professional competence over the career of a professional accountant.

Comments on the exposure draft close on 28 July 2011. Click for the IAESB announcement (link to IFAC website).
