The IFRS Foundation is calling for applications from relevant jurisdictional and regional bodies to become members of the Sustainability Standards Advisory Forum (SSAF).

The SSAF will be established in 2022 to formalise and streamline the relationships between the IFRS Foundation and ISSB with the relevant jurisdictional and regional bodies, in order to bring important regional perspectives to the ISSB's technical work and to offer feedback on the most important issues of the day.

The SSAF is comprised of 12-16 members and a non-voting chair (being the IASB chair or vice-chair).  The 12-16 members are sourced from the following geographical regions:

  • Africa: 1 member
  • Americas (North and South): 3 members
  • Asia/Oceania: 3 members
  • Europe (including non-EU): 3 members
  • World at large*: minimum 2, up to 6 members

* subject to maintaining overall geographical balance.

Membership of the SSAF is open to all relevant jurisdictional and regional bodies with existing expertise in sustainability-related reporting relevant to the development of IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards that are interoperable with jurisdictional sustainability-related reporting requirements.

The closing date for applications is 11 July 2022.
