The UKEB Due Process Handbook (Handbook) can be accessed here.
The Handbook sets out the due process that the UKEB follows in carrying out its statutory functions, which consist of:
a) influencing the development of international accounting standards and the other activities of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the IFRS Interpretations Committee; and
b) endorsing and adopting new international accounting standards, amendments to international accounting standards or IFRIC Interpretations for use in the UK.
This Handbook describes additional due process steps that the UKEB follows for:
a) carrying out its thought leadership activities and developing its own research programme;
b) performing its own post–implementation reviews;
c) setting up and operating advisory groups; and
d) ensuring it complies with the required due process steps in this Handbook.
 This term has the meaning given in SI 2019/685 by referring to Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1606/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 19 July 2002 on the application of international accounting standards:
‘international accounting standards’ shall mean International Accounting Standards (IAS), International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and related Interpretations (SIC-IFRIC interpretations), subsequent amendments to those standards and related interpretations, future standards and related interpretations issued or adopted by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB)’.
On 21 February 2022 the UKEB published a [draft] Handbook for public consultation.
