The International Arab Society of Certified Accountants (IASCA) was established on January 12, 1984 as a non-profit professional accounting association in London, UK. It was formally registered in Amman on February 24, 1994 under the name “The Arab Society of Certified Accountants”.
The notion of establishing IASCA was proposed by a group of elite Arab accountants which aimed at advancing the profession of accounting, auditing and other related disciplines in the countries of the Arab League. IASCA also aims at maintaining the professional independence of Arab accountants and their protection, as well as the application of professional supervisory measures as a way to elevate the professions of accounting and auditing. It also aims at developing and facilitating the continuous spread and exchange of professional and technical information among accountants by holding conferences, meetings, seminars, training courses and academic gatherings.
