18 Oct 2013

The French standard-setter Autorité des Normes Comptable (ANC) has issued the programme for its 4th Symposium on Accounting Research which will take place on 14 and 15 November 2013 in Paris. The agenda includes a discussion of two controversial reports about the future of European accounting.

The two reports on the role of Europe in international standard-setting and questions regarding the adoption of international standards are:

  • the AFEP-MEDEF report Strengthening the process for adopting International Accounting Standards: A strategic challenge for the European Union that was published in July 2013 and suggests changes to the role of the conceptual framework in developing IFRSs and calls for some changes to the European regulation on IFRS as well as the European structures in place as a result of this regulation and
  • the Maystadt report released in September in draft version and expected in its final version in November 2013 which sets out the special advisor's preliminary recommendations for enhancing the EU’s role in promoting high quality accounting standards.

The reports will be presented by their authors, Michel Pébereau and Philippe Maystadt in an afternoon session on 14 November.
