The tensions over IAS 39 and controversy over some of the IASB’s other projects, turned the first five-yearly review of the IASC Foundation Constitution into a debate on how to square the IASB’s identity as an independent technical expert group with demands for oversight and control from jurisdictions where IFRSs had the status of law. Key questions discussed included the appointment process of trustees and board members, control over the IASB’s agenda, and ensuring constituents’ right to a proper hearing by the IASB. In the end, the trustees made only minor adjustments to the Constitution. Yet, it was recognized that the trustees should be more active in overseeing the IASB, that the Board should enhance its procedures for consultation and feedback, and that establishing some form of accountability still required attention.
