It was founded in 1984. The strategy of the organization is not to create new standards, but rather to promote harmonization by building common knowledge and adoption of International Accounting Standards (IAS, which accommodates regional/national variations).[1][2]

Former presidents of the SAFA include Jamal Uddin Ahmad.[3]
