The purpose of the FRSC is to bring contributions of academic research to the standard-setting process. This includes a responsibility for the FRSC to liaison with the IASB and EFRAG on behalf of the EAA to promote the use of academic research and to ensure that the voice of the European academic community is heard.
The FRSC is a facilitating committee that identifies tasks to be undertaken and coordinates volunteers from the research community to address them. Those volunteers become members of the Financial Reporting Research Group (FRRG) and participate in specific projects.
During the past year many members of the FRRG have been involved in writing the comment letters to the IASB Exposure Draft Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting, the request for views regarding Trustee’s Review of Structure and Effectiveness: Issues for the Review, and the request for views regarding 2015 Agenda Consultation. Günther Gebhardt has served as a member of the EFRAG Technical Expert Group (TEG) and the EFRAG financial instruments working group (FIWG).
The FRSC plans to respond to the Discussion Paper for comment regarding Principles of Disclosure, which is expected to be published by the IASB in December 2016.
Anyone interested in volunteering for work with the FRSC or wanting information about it is invited to contact the chairman, Niclas Hellman (email@example.com).
