The International Accounting Education Standards Board of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) is seeking comments on an ED of its three-year strategic and operational plan.
Proposed high-priority activities beginning this year include
• Conducting a fundamental review of the Framework for International Education Statements, considering developments in accounting education and the profession as a whole since this document was first written.
• Developing a benchmarking methodology to help IFAC members and others achieve the measurable implementation of IESs.
• Reviewing existing IESs to determine areas where the clarity of standards could be improved or additional guidance most usefully developed.
