The Trustees of the IFRS Foundation have appointed three new members to the IFRS Interpretations Committee (Committee).

The Three members are the Andre Besson, Karen Higgins and M P Vijay Kumar.

The Committee works with the International Accounting Standards Board (Board) in supporting the consistent application of IFRS Standards. In particular, the Committee responds to application questions by publishing agenda decisions to explain how IFRS Standards apply to particular scenarios. If required, the Committee also develops interpretations (called IFRIC Interpretations, which are subject to ratification by the Board) or proposes that the Board amend the Standards.
