The IASB and the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) have issued a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), agreeing to co-operate in developing private and public sector accounting standards.

This MoU was developed to ensure greater consistency in the boards' standard-setting activities. In the MoU, the boards lay out a 'communication and co-operation process' which provides information on meetings, projects, crises, programs, soliciting feedback and more.
