IFRS Foundation to publish stakeholder engagement register
Released 22 July 2019
The aim of the register is to ensure that board member engagement with stakeholders is recorded on the public record.
Following stakeholder feedback, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has decided to release a register of engagement between members of the Board and its stakeholders, to continue to demonstrate the Board’s independence and accountability.
As set out by the IASB, the 'register will include speaking engagement and face-to-face, web-based or phone meetings of more than 30 minutes duration. Members will capture the date, location and purpose of each engagement, as well as the name of the relevant stakeholder organisation'.
The engagements will be published quarterly on the IASB website, with the first expected for the quarter ending December 2019.
