Vacancy: Members, IFRS Interpretations Committee

 13 January 2015

The Trustees of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Foundation invite applications from suitable candidates to fill up to four vacancies on the IFRS Interpretations Committee.

The IFRS Interpretations Committee is the interpretative body of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and consists of fourteen voting members under the non-voting chairmanship of Wayne Upton. The role of the IFRS Interpretations Committee is to interpret the application of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) to ensure consistent accounting practices throughout the world and to provide timely guidance on financial reporting issues that are not specifically addressed in IFRSs, within the context of the IASB´s Conceptual Framework.

In making these appointments, the Trustees will give consideration to the diversity of international business and will place special emphasis on a candidate´s ability to identify and address issues concerning the practical application of IFRS.

The Trustees will appoint up to four members to the IFRS Interpretations Committee to serve for a term that will begin on 1 July 2015 and that will expire on 30 June 2018.  All terms may be renewed for a further three years. Two of the four positions are currently occupied by members who are eligible for reappointment and the Trustees will give particular consideration to the current members.  Members are expected to attend approximately six two-day meetings each year, which will be held in London. Membership is unpaid, but the IFRS Foundation meets members´ expenses for travel on IFRS Interpretations Committee business. 

Please indicate your interest by sending a cover letter and curriculum vitae by 6 March 2015 to Jill Robinson, IFRS Foundation, 30 Cannon Street, London EC4M 6XH, United Kingdom, email:
