 World Standard-setters Conference

Since 2002 the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has hosted an annual conference for the world's financial reporting standard‑setters.

The conference provides a forum for those responsible for setting financial reporting requirements in jurisdictions around the world to:

  • share IFRS convergence, adoption, implementation and application experiences
  • be consulted on the IASB's agenda
  • be updated on developments in International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs)
  • provide feedback to the IASB and its staff on active IASB agenda projects.

The conference is organised by the IFRS Foundation's education staff and chaired by an IASB member. It is held in London in September or October each year. Proceedings are conducted in the English language.
