Investopedia explains 'Accounting Standards Committee - ASC '


Accounting scandals in the late 1960s and early 1970s prompted the formation of the Accounting Standards Committee to issue accounting standards. In 1990, the Accounting Standards Board took over its responsibilities, which was then replaced by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) in 2001. The IASB issues accounting standards within the United Kingdom and collaborates with other countries' accounting standard-setters.
