    The elaboration of international referentials IPSAS (International Public Sector Accounting Standards) by competent bodies (IPSASB – International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board) involves a continuous junction between the specific needs of national accounting systems in the context of the harmonization process and their convergence and the identification of the needs of economic, political, social systems, whose interdependency is evident. This process determines the continuous update of IPSAS, for being able to answer to many current problems. The study aims to highlight through a positivist approach, combining quantitative with qualitative research, how Exposure Draft 42 – Improvements to IPSASs, succeds to capture the need for changing of content, namely terminology of 12 IPSAS. Following the purpose of this process, through the adoption of changes in January 2010, we can identify how comments of various professional accountancy bodies influenced the final decision of IPSASB. The study is of great importance for both the theoreticians from accounting field, who can make an image on the research trends in this field, and the practicians who can get the answer to some problems of IPSASs, whose solution will be achieved by international standard approval.
