Global Regulatory Convergence and the Accountancy Profession
Policy Position Paper #6
Global regulatory convergence is an essential element of the globalization of capital and debt markets, and is important in promoting the comparability of financial information, minimizing the effects of systemic economic risks, and helping to create a level playing field for international competition. For the accountancy profession, regulatory convergence includes the globally consistent adoption and implementation of high-quality internationally accepted financial reporting, auditing, assurance, and auditor independence standards.
