01 July 2016
The Trustees of the IFRS Foundation, responsible for the governance and oversight of the International Accounting Standards Board, have confirmed the appointment of Andrew Buchanan to the IFRS Interpretations Committee.
Andrew is the Global Head of IFRS at BDO, and is a member of the IASB/FASB Joint Transition Resource Group for Revenue Recognition. He is also a member of the Federation of European Accountants (FEE) Corporate Reporting Policy Group and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) Accounting Standards Committee, and an independent member of the UK Government Financial Reporting Advisory Board.
In 2013, the IFRS Foundation announced that it would broaden the number of accountancy firms represented on the IFRS Interpretations Committee and established an extra seat. Two people were appointed at the time to fill the seat on a rotational basis for three years. Andrew Watchman from Grant Thornton filled the seat from 2013 and stepped down early due to his appointment as European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) CEO and Technical Expert Group Chairman in April 2016.
Andrew Buchanan starts his appointment in July 2016, as originally announced,
for a three-year term.
