An introduction to ACCA’s technical policy work

This document outlines the work of ACCA on technical issues and details the main individual areas of focus.


As part of its efforts to maintain and enhance its status as a leading international professional body ACCA actively engages with the key debates on the current and future nature of accountants’ work.

We monitor technical developments on a national and global basis and, working with our global networks of members, ensure that ACCA’s distinctive perspective is communicated to governments, regulators and standard setters.

We work to advance the public interest and to promote the public value that accountants can bring to their clients, employers and wider society.  
This publication summarises the main areas of focus of ACCA’s technical policy work and the broad directions that we take in it.
