International Accounting Standards

A former system for standardizing accounting practices across the world. International Accounting Standards were issued by the International Accounting Standards Committee. Though it had no authority to enforce its rulings, a number of countries followed its guidelines anyway. In 2001, the IAS were replaced by the International Financial Reporting Standards.
