Almost every FASB project is a matter of interest in some other country or with the International Accounting Standards Committee. The FASB's obligation to its domestic constituents demands that it attempt to narrow the range of difference between the U.S. and other countries' standards. The Board and staff participate in many international liaison activities with different standard setters around the world."
  • International Accounting Standards Board

Board Members come from nine countries and have a variety of functional backgrounds. The Board is committed to developing, in the public interest, a single set of high quality, understandable and enforceable global accounting standards that require transparent and comparable information in general purpose financial statements. In addition, the Board cooperates with national accounting standard setters to achieve convergence in accounting standards around the world."
