IFRS Foundation Workshop: Third Agenda Consultation Wednesday 26 May – 11.00-12.00 CEST

Presenters:  Ann Tarca IASB Member, Anne McGeachin IASB Technical Staff and Ana Simpson IASB Technical Staff

This workshop will provide an overview of the Third Agenda Consultation.

The objective of the Agenda Consultation is to seek feedback on: 1) the strategic direction and balance of the IASB’s work; 2) the criteria for assessing the priority of financial reporting issues; and 3) the priority of financial reporting issues that could be added to the work plan.

In March 2021 the IASB published Request for Information for public comment. The comment period will end on 27 September. It will allow Andreas Barckow who joins the IASB as Chair from July 2021 to be involved in determining the Board’s priorities from 2022 to 2026.

The session will be interactive and should be useful for people engaged in teaching IFRS Standards and those conducting research about the impact of IFRS Standards.
