Oct 02, 2013 | at Fédération International des Experts-comptables Francophones General Assembly | Dijon, France | English
IFAC recently held a workshop on the Statements of Membership Obligations (SMOs) with members of the Fédération International des Experts-comptables Francophones (FIDEF) during FIDEF’s General Assembly and the 68th Congrès des Experts-Comptables in Dijon, France. The event gathered 31 participants representing 20 professional accountancy organizations. The workshop was preceded by a presentation in French on IFAC’s membership process, the SMOs, and the IFAC Member Body Compliance Program. Participants were then invited to discuss their approach to addressing the requirements of the SMOs. This session provided the opportunity to contextualize the range of guidance and information provided and allowed national PAOs to exchange experiences, receive input from others, and share ideas. The workshop promoted knowledge exchange and offered an open forum for the participants to discuss the challenges and lessons learned. The translation of IFAC guidance and international standards into French was also a topic of discussion.
