Between 2006 and 2009 the question of the IASB’s public accountability was resolved by establishing a Monitoring Board, mainly composed of securities regulators. The powers of the Monitoring Board, in relation to the IASB Board’s independence, were a matter of intense negations. In the course of the second review of the Foundation’s Constitution, a number of other changes were made in recognition of the IASB’s growing responsibility as the standard setter for companies in more than a hundred countries. Given the central role played by David Tweedie during the IASB’s first decade, the choice of his successor was a seen as a vital matter, testing the relationship between the Foundation trustees and the recently established Monitoring Board. The relationship was further explored in parallel reviews of the IASB’s governance and strategy conducted by the trustees and the Monitoring Board.
