The Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) contributes to the development of IFRS® Standards by participating in consultations and activities of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) on these active projects.  For example, the AcSB organizes opportunities for Canadians to discuss proposals, including with members of the IASB and its staff, develops recommendations, and responds to all documents for comment to ensure that Canadian entities’ financial reporting needs are considered by the IASB.

* The AcSB will issue a corresponding exposure draft or re-exposure draft shortly after the IASB document is available in English and in French.
