Nominations called for the four international standard- setting boards


Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Monday, 11 December 2017 00:00


A call for nominations for the four international standard-setting boards was issued last week.

For nearly two decades, the global economy and financial market stability have been supported by the work of these international, independent standard-setting boards. Members of these boards are highly knowledgeable and informed individuals with insight and perspectives relevant to global standards.

The Call for Nominations for 2019 details the upcoming opportunities for qualified individuals to join the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB), International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB), International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA), and International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB). Serving on these boards allows individuals with diverse professional backgrounds to contribute to the development of international standards, and to gain international experience while serving the public interest.

Nominations for the 22 open volunteer positions can come from all stakeholders, interested parties, and the general public. Travel support is available to qualified candidates from developing nations, self-nominees, and public members.

Gender equality is especially important to the Nominating Committee and, therefore, nominations of strong female candidates are strongly encouraged. Although candidates are ultimately selected based on professional background and experience, nominations from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Middle East are particularly welcome to promote greater diversity on each board.

Candidates should have relevant subject-matter knowledge as well as strong English proficiency. Each board meets up to four times per year; the required time commitment is approximately 300 to 850 hours per year, depending on the board, member involvement, preparation, and travel time. 

The Nominating Committee requests submissions by 15February2018 via the Nominations Database. 

The IAASB is an independent standard-setting board that develops auditing and assurance standards and guidance for use by all professional accountants under a shared standard-setting process involving the Public Interest Oversight Board, which oversees the activities of the IAASB, and the IAASB Consultative Advisory Group, which provides public interest input into the development of the standards and guidance. The structures and processes that support the operations of the IAASB are facilitated by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC).
