Statements of Membership Obligations Fulfillment Status

The Statements of Membership Obligations form the basis of the IFAC Member Compliance Program. They serve as a framework for credible and high-quality professional accountancy organizations focused on serving the public interest by adopting, or otherwise incorporating, and supporting implementation of international standards and maintaining adequate enforcement mechanisms to ensure the professional behavior of their individual members.

As part of the Compliance Program, IFAC Members and Associates complete and submit an SMO Action Plan annually or biennially. This plan provides the opportunity to report progress, challenges, and insights in support of SMO fulfillment. It is also used by IFAC staff to support each Member and Associate.

Using the submitted SMO Action Plan and third-party sources, IFAC assesses the status of SMO fulfillment by each Member and Associate. These assessments take the form of member, and country, profiles. “Draft” profiles have been completed by IFAC but are under review by the Member or Associate.
