The International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) presents the board’s strategy and priorities toward the setting of high-quality, future-ready ethics standards for professional accountants that are widely adopted around the world.  Building on the newly revised and restructured International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including International Independence Standards) (the Code), which will come into effect in June 2019, the IESBA’s Strategy features three inter-related strategic themes:

  • Advancing the relevance and impact of the Code, through maintaining a global Code fit for purpose in the evolving environment, and further raising the bar on ethics;
  • Deepening and expanding the Code’s influence, through increasing global adoption and effective implementation of the Code; and
  • Expanding the IESBA’s perspectives and inputs, through proactively engaging and seeking cooperative avenues with stakeholders.

The staff-prepared Basis for Conclusions document relates to, but does not form part of, the Strategy and Work Plan.
