Standards & Pronouncements


2019 Handbook of International Education Pronouncements


This handbook contains the authoritative set of currently-effective International Education Standards, as well as a framework, description of levels of proficiency, drafting conventions, and a glossary of terms, and includes IES that will become effective in the future. These new standards focus on enhancing accountancy’s technology and skepticism skills. The pronouncements were developed by the IAESB. The handbook is available online or for hard copy purchase. In addition, the IAESB developed helpful implementation guidance on non-authoritative learning outcomes on information and communications technologies and for the public sector accountancy curricula, and on the development of professional accountants in business for the strategic partner’s role.
