Deloitte LLP (United States) has published IFRS Considerations for Audit Committees.

The strong global movement toward IFRSs and recent US SEC activity have created a need for audit committees and company management to discuss the potential costs, benefits, and other effects of a transition to IFRSs. Because audit committees have a fiduciary responsibility to protect the interest of shareholders and oversee the integrity of the company's financial reporting process, their involvement in the transition to IFRS is essential. This 21-page publication is designed to assist audit committee members in preparing for meaningful and effective conversations about IFRSs, and includes:
  • A high-level overview of IFRS accounting requirements and potential IFRS-U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles differences.
  • Implementation considerations.
  • Key questions audit committees should ask.
