IFAC Publishes International Good Practice Guidance in Spanish

Apr 13, 2016 | English

The International Good Practice Guidance series, developed to support professional accountants in business, is now available in Spanish. These publications include:

These guidance reports cover areas of international and strategic importance where professional accountants in business are likely to engage. By issuing principles-based guidance, IFAC seeks to foster a common and consistent approach to those areas not covered by international standards but frequently under the domain of accountants in business. IFAC seeks to clearly identify principles that are generally accepted internationally and applicable to organizations of all sizes in commerce, industry, education, and the public and not-for-profit sectors.

These Spanish translations were performed by the Instituto Mexicano de Contadores Públicos and 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 members 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 IFAC publications. The Interamerican Accounting Association, IFAC’s regional organization for Latin America and the Caribbean, is a project observer. The project includes a Review Committee of technical experts representing IFAC member organizations in nine Spanish-speaking countries.
