1. Ibero-American Cooperation Framework for Sustainable Spanish Translations Established

In October 2012, IFAC and its member bodies Instituto de Censores Jurados de Cuentas de España, Federación Argentina de Consejos Profesionales de Ciencias Económicas, and Instituto Mexicano de Contadores Públicos formally agreed to establish an Ibero-American cooperation framework to achieve longer-term, sustainable processes for a single, Spanish translation of international standards and other IFAC publications.

The resulting landmark Memorandum of Understanding was commemorated with a formal signing ceremony that included the Interamerican Accounting Association, the IFAC recognized regional organization for Latin America and the Caribbean. The newly created Executive Committee of the Ibero-American Cooperation Framework will have its inaugural meeting in early February 2013 to plan the way forward.

2. Update of Policy Statements

While IFAC greatly appreciates the significant contributions made by many of its stakeholders in the adoption and implementation of international standards, it also must adapt to the increased cost of high-quality international standard setting. In December 2012, the IFAC Board introduced an annual license fee, or waiver fee depending on the circumstances, for use of IFAC copyrighted materials. Such fees contribute to funding the continued activities and mission of IFAC and the independent standard-setting boards it supports.

The introduction of the fee structure is the only change of substance to the policy statements. The fee structure is outlined in Policy for Translating and Reproducing Standards Published by the International Federation of Accountants, and Policy for Reproducing, or Translating and Reproducing, Publications of the International Federation of Accountants.

4. Event Scheduled Regarding Adoption and Implementation of International Standards in the Former Soviet Republics in Europe and Central Asia

IFAC, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB), and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) will be hosting an invitation-only event in London, May 15-16, 2013, focused on developments in International Standards on Auditing and International Financial Reporting Standards, with discussion of their adoption and implementation in the former Soviet Republics in Europe and Central Asia. Translations, including Russian and other languages, of IAASB and IASB pronouncements will be a significant topic of discussion.
