the Financial Accounting Standards Board
Established in 1973,
the FASB is the independent, private-sector, not-for-profit organization based
in Norwalk, Connecticut, that establishes financial accounting and reporting
standards for public and private companies and not-for-profit organizations that
follow Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The FASB is recognized
by the Securities and Exchange Commission as the designated accounting standard
setter for public companies. FASB standards are recognized as authoritative by
many other organizations, including state Boards of Accountancy and the American
Institute of CPAs (AICPA). The FASB develops and issues financial accounting
standards through a transparent and inclusive process intended to promote
financial reporting that provides useful information to investors and others who
use financial reports. The Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF) supports and
oversees the FASB. For more information, visit http://www.fasb.org/.
