IAASB Issues Guidance for Assurance Practitioners When Citing IFRS Accounting Standards

Dec 8, 2023 | New York, New York | English

The International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) has issued guidance to help stakeholders understand how to reference IFRS Accounting Standards to follow recent updates to the IFRS Foundation® Trade Mark Guidelines. The updated IFRS Foundation guidelines require, amongst other things, that International Accounting Standards Board standards, including the International Accounting Standards (IASs) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs), be referred to as “IFRS Accounting Standards”.

The IAASB’s new guidance clarifies how auditors or practitioners should refer to the IFRS Accounting Standards in their reports. The alert also describes changes that the IAASB intends to make to future editions of the IAASB handbook to address existing references to the IASs and IFRSs.
