IAESB Releases 2009 Handbook of International Education Pronouncements
The International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB) of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) has released the 2009 edition of its Handbook of International Education Pronouncements. The handbook can be downloaded free of charge in PDF format from the IFAC online bookstore (www.ifac.org/store), and print copies can be ordered now for shipment in early April.
The 2009 Education Handbook contains the IAESB's suite of eight International Education Standards (IESs), including the IAESB Framework for International Education Pronouncements and Introduction to International Education Standards, as well as three International Education Practice Statements. The handbook reflects the changes in the IAESB's terms of reference and due process approved in 2006, an update of the glossary for key definitions introduced since its original publication, and minor editorial corrections. No changes of substance have been made in the framework, introduction, or the IESs.
Print copies of the handbook can be ordered for US$50.00 plus shipping. Discounts are available for students, academics, and individuals living in developing countries, as well as for orders of 10 or more copies.

The 2009 Handbook of International Education Pronouncements can be downloaded or ordered from the IFAC online bookstore at www.ifac.org/store. Orders can also be placed by calling IFAC at +1 (212) 471-8722.
