Russell Bedford International was named among the first 17 full members of the IFAC Forum of Firms in January 2008. The Forum is an association of international audit networks, and its goal is to promote consistent and high quality standards of financial reporting and auditing practices worldwide. As a full member of the Forum, Russell Bedford International is entitled to indicate Forum membership on its letterhead and promotional materials. In addition, selected member firms of Russell Bedford International - mainly those that conduct transnational audits - have been granted approval to indicate that they are members of Russell Bedford International and that their network is a member of the Forum.
Russell Bedford International is a member of the European Group of International Accounting Networks and Associations (EGIAN), an association whose membership is made up of 20 truly global organisations which offer audit, accounting and business advisory services. EGIAN provides a forum for the members to develop common positions on specific technical and legislative issues and to debate these issues with key professional stakeholders and regulators such as the European Commission, CESR (The Committee of European Securities Regulators), FEE (The Federation of European Accountants) and IFAC (The International Federation of Accountants).
Russell Bedford International has a cooperation agreement with Talal Abu-Ghazaleh & Co. International (TAGI), one of the largest and foremost groups of professional services firms in the Arab world. Russell Bedford is currently represented by its own affiliates in several Middle Eastern countries. However, this agreement gives the network access to TAGI offices to service the needs of Russell Bedford clients in territories not currently served by a member or correspondent firm. Any enquiries relating to these locations should be directed in the first instance to the Central Office of Russell Bedford International in London.
