International Education Standards

The International Education Standards (IESs), issued by the International Federation of Accountants, set forth the principles that professional accountancy organizations should follow to build a national accountancy profession that is fully capable of fulfilling the complex demands economies and societies place on it.

From this website, you can access the International Education Standards—electronically through the IFAC Accountancy Education E-Tool or as PDFs in the Standards & Pronouncements section—as well as materials to help understand and follow the standards.


IFAC Knowledge Gateway

The IFAC Knowledge Gateway also publishes articles and publications that help prepare current and future professional accountants to meet market and society needs.
