IFAC's Constitution and Bylaws detail the responsibilities and authority of IFAC's Council, Board, and Board committees. They also address IFAC’s mission, membership requirements, and the election/appointment of IFAC officers.
The IFAC Constitution and Bylaws were revised in 2013 to ensure the documents continue to embrace best practices and enable timely action by improving governance structure, clarifying the roles and responsibilities of IFAC in standard setting in the public interest, and ensuring IFAC continues to have broad representation from all parts of the profession. The IFAC Board developed the principles-based Constitution to include an appropriate level of detail specified in the Bylaws and Policies.
These versions of the IFAC Constitution and Bylaws were approved by the IFAC Council in February 2014.
