The SEC's "Staff Paper" on IFRS: The Condorsement Approach As noted in FEI's "Financial Reporting Blog ," the SEC's Office of Chief Accountant posted this " Staff Paper " last week that seeks comments regarding how to incorporate IFRS into US GAAP, including the "condorsement" approach (which is a process by which the FASB would gradually adopt specific parts of IFRS over a transitional period).
