This chapter summarizes the history of the IASC from 1973 to 2000. Created at the initiative of accountancy bodies from several countries, the IASC achieved a modest acceptance of its basic accounting standards. After 1987, the IASC pursued acceptance of its standards for the purpose of cross-border securities listings. To this end, the IASC strengthened its standards in consultation with the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO). Although IOSCO endorsed the IASC’s standards in 2000, the main objective of acceptance of the standards by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) remained elusive. With strong encouragement of SEC, a restructuring of the IASC into an independent standard setter was agreed in 1999.
