AAOIFI standards available online

Bahrain-based Accounting and Auditing Organisation for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI) standards will be made available online through Thomson Reuters' range of digital information platforms, including Zawya Islamic. AAOIFI Sharia standards are approved and developed under the guidance of its Sharia Board. The standards represent the broadest consensus of rules that govern the Islamic finance industry and cover Sharia, accounting, auditing, governance and ethics. By making the standards available online, accessibility to the standards will be greatly improved which in turn promotes their wider adoption.
