The Accounting Standards Oversight Council (AcSOC) is an independent, volunteer body established by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2000 that serves the public interest by overseeing and providing input on the activities of the Accounting Standards Board (AcSB), who set financial reporting standards for profit-oriented enterprises and not-for-profit organizations, and the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB), who set financial reporting standards for governments and their organizations. AcSOC’s responsibilities include appointing AcSOC, AcSB and PSAB members. Reporting to the public and made up of representatives that include regulators, investors and other users, preparers and auditors of financial reports, AcSOC brings a broad perspective to complex issues facing standard setters in both the private and public sector.
