The International Accounting Education Standards Board of the International Federation of Accountants has released the 2010 edition of its Handbook of International Education Pronouncements.

The 2010 Education Handbook contains eight International Education Standards from the IAESB, including the Framework for International Education Standards for Professional Accountants, as well as three International Education Practice Statements.

“The handbook brings together in one document a comprehensive compilation of standards and implementation guidance in the area of professional accounting education,” said IAESB chair Mark Allison in a statement. “The document will assist those who are responsible for the design, delivery, and assessment of accounting education programs for professional accountants.”

The handbook has been updated to include the new framework document, a revised glossary that includes new terms from the framework, and minor editorial corrections. The new framework, which uses a simplified structure so that first-time readers can readily understand the content, sets out the underlying educational concepts that the IAESB uses in its publications.

The concepts are designed to promote greater consistency in IAESB publications and help make the standard-setting process more efficient and effective. The new framework replaces the previously existing Framework for International Education Pronouncements and the Introduction to the International Education Standards documents, which were published in October 2003.

The handbook can be downloaded free of charge in PDF format from IFAC’s Publications and Resources site at web.ifac.org/publications. Print copies can be ordered for $50 plus shipping from the website or by calling IFAC at (212) 471-8722. Discounts are available for students, academics, and individuals living in developing countries, as well as for orders of 10 or more copies.
