IFRS faces critical year

E&Y flags up 2010 as a critical year for global standards

The takeup of international financial reporting standards faces a critical

It applauded the level of takeup of IFRS across the globe, but warned that
the US and international standard setters still faced hurdles to meet the
convergence goal.

“The challenges faced by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the

Board should not overshadow the significant progress made to date across the
globe,” said Ruth Picker, global IFRS leader at Ernst & Young.
