The International Accounting Standards Board (Board) has today announced the membership of its Management Commentary Consultative Group (Consultative Group), established to advise the Board as it develops proposals for updating its guidance on management commentary in financial reports.
The Consultative Group was established to help inform the Board’s project to update IFRS Practice Statement 1 Management Commentary. In undertaking the project, the Board will consider how broader financial reporting could complement and support IFRS financial statements.
The Consultative Group comprises members and observers from a variety of jurisdictions and backgrounds, including users of financial reports, auditors, preparers of financial statements, securities regulators and standard-setters.
The Consultative Group will give the Board access to people and organisations with practical experience and expertise in developing and implementing management commentary regimes and in using information disclosed in management commentary.
Hans Hoogervorst, Chair of the Board, said:
The project to update IFRS guidance on management commentary is a key part of the Board’s work under the Better Communication in Financial Reporting theme. Input from people with experience in this field through the Consultative Group will provide valuable help to the Board.
The meetings of the Consultative Group will be in public and recorded live as webcasts. Agenda papers and recordings of meetings will be posted within the Management Commentary Consultative Group section.
