IFAC membership is a globally recognized hallmark of a high-quality professional accountancy organization (PAO). IFAC membership makes it clear to public and private sector organizations locally, regionally, and internationally that your PAO has credibility, capacity and relevance.

Because our requirements include adopting international standards adoption and supporting implementation, IFAC membership also demonstrates a PAO’s expertise in and commitment to international standards, best practices, and serving the public interest.

Our members are our most important stakeholders and constituents. They guide our strategic direction, steer our agenda, and contribute thought leadership and resources to support the entire global profession.

Our membership comprises 180 member organizations in more than 135 jurisdictions—representing more than 3 million professional accountants worldwide.

Value of Membership

Our member organizations help shape the voice of the global profession and set its focus and direction. They also join the global conversation on crucial issues, contributing necessary local and regional perspectives to global debates and the international standard-setting processes.

As part of the IFAC network, our member organizations gain access to expertise, resources, and support that helps them strengthen the services provided to their membership.
