Sep 03, 2015 | New York, New York | English
The International Federation of Accountants® (IFAC®) today published in the Spanish language the following guidance for professional accountancy organizations (PAOs):
- Establishing and Developing a Professional Accountancy Body
- Tools and Resources to Support the Development of the Accounting Profession
The two publications are designed to support PAOs in expanding and strengthening their role and responsibilities in representing the accountancy profession. Establishing and Developing a Professional Accountancy Body covers the roles and responsibilities of a PAO, education and examinations, and capacity development. Tools and Resources to Support the Development of the Accounting Profession includes case studies, practical illustrations, and supplementary guidance.
These Spanish translations were performed by the Federación Argentina de Consejos Profesionales de Ciencias Económicas and are a result of the Ibero-American cooperation framework, known as the IberAm project. Established in 2012, the IberAm project—which includes IFAC and its member organizations in Argentina, Mexico, and Spain—is an IFAC-authorized translation and review process that strives to achieve longer-term, sustainable processes for single, high-quality Spanish translations of international standards and other IFAC publications. The Interamerican Accounting Association, IFAC’s regional organization for Latin America and the Caribbean, is an observer to the project. In addition, the project involves a Review Committee of technical experts representing IFAC member organizations in nine Spanish-speaking countries.
“We are extremely grateful to the Federación Argentina de Consejos Profesionales de Ciencias Económicas for the work they’ve done in completing this translation, as well as to the entire IberAm group,” said IFAC CEO Fayez Choudhury. This initiative strengthens our profession by helping to improve quality and capacity and develop strong PAOs.”
These publications also are available in Arabic and French. For an overview of publication translations, please visit the newly enhanced IFAC Translations Database.
