The first hearing took place on 1 December 2015 and featured an introduction by the ECON Chair Roberto Gualtieri followed by short presentations by four invited experts. The presentations were followed by a joint discussion with ECON members.

The second hearing took place on 11 January 2016. IASB Chairman Hans Hoogervorst gave a short presentation of the current work of the IASB. Afterwards, he and Michel Prada, Chairman of the IFRS Foundation Trustees, answered questions of the ECON members.
