Papers of the Accounting Standards Committee of the Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies (CCAB).

The ASC was superseded by the Accounting Standards Board in 1990.
Material includes the minutes and papers of the ASC committees, subject files, press releases, press cuttings, government and other reports, draft and published copies of standards, offprints and copies of articles and extracts from books. The collection also contains the papers of the ASC's predecessor body, the Accounting Standards Steering Committee (ASSC).
