The European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) has called on European Stakeholder Organisations and National Standard Setters to nominate candidates for the new EFRAG Board.

The new EFRAG governance structure will become effective from 31 October 2014.  In the new structure, and with the objective of Europe speaking with one voice, a new EFRAG Board will be established and will be responsible for all EFRAG positions, after having considered the technical advice provided by the EFRAG Technical Expert Group (EFRAG TEG).  The Board must also ensure that the EFRAG has an open and transparent due process including a public consultation process with European constituents on draft EFRAG positions such as discussion papers, draft comment letters, draft consultation documents and draft endorsement advices.
