IFRS Foundation announces interim appointments to the Interpretations Committee and Advisory Council

 22 December 2014

The IFRS Foundation today announced interim appointments to the IFRS Interpretations Committee and the IFRS Advisory Council.

Robert Uhl, a Partner and National Director for Accounting Standards & Communications at Deloitte in the United States, has been appointed to the IFRS Interpretations Committee with immediate effect. Mr Uhl’s appointment follows the departure of Laurence Rivat and is therefore made in an interim capacity until 30 June 2015. The IFRS Interpretations Committee is the interpretative body of the International Accounting Standards Board. It reviews implementation issues that have arisen and provides authoritative guidance on those issues.

Roger Marshall, Acting President of the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) and non-executive Chairman of the Accounting Council of the United Kingdom Financial Reporting Council, has been appointed to represent EFRAG on the IFRS Advisory Council with effect from 1 January 2015. Mr Marshall’s appointment is also made in an interim capacity until a permanent President of EFRAG is in place. The IFRS Advisory Council is the formal advisory body to the Trustees and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).
