their preparedness for incorporation of IFRS into the financial
reporting system for US issuers;
- How investors educate themselves on changes
in accounting standards and the timeliness of such education;

time necessary to undertake changes to improve investor
understanding of IFRS and the related education process to ensure
investors have a sufficient understanding of IFRS prior to
The deadline for comments is 11 October.
