The IFRS Foundation (IFRSF) has published a questionnaire to assess the Accounting Standards Advisory Forum (ASAF). The questionnaire intends to gain views from those in the accounting standard-setting community that are not members of the ASAF.

As stated in the Terms of Reference, “[a]ll aspects of ASAF and its operations shall be reviewed by the IFRS Foundation two years after the establishment of the group (as from the date of signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)).” The questionnaire is the first step in assessing how the ASAF has performed in relation to its Terms of Reference and Memorandum of Understanding.

The IFRSF expects to publish a feedback statement detailing the findings and actions from the review after the Trustees and IASB have had time to consider the findings. It is expected to be issued mid-2015. Participants are requested to complete the questionnaire by 9 January 2015.

For more information, see the press release on the IASB’s website.
