FASB webcast on Accounting Standards Codification:

  • Title of Webcast: The Move to Codification of US GAAP
  • Date and Time: 13 March 2008, 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (US EDT)
  • Panelists: Larry Smith, a member of the FASB, and Tom Hoey, project director for the FASB codification project. Jay Hanson, National Director of Accounting for McGladrey & Pullen, will moderate the program.
  • Topic: The panelists will discuss and demonstrate the use of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. The Codification is an on-line research system that organises by topic all authoritative US GAAP. The Codification is in the verification phase, which means that it is not yet authoritative. During the verification phase, constituents are encouraged to use and provide feedback.
