The study of the relationship between accounting and social change has entered the agenda of accounting research. Adopting the mode of analysis of Burchell et al. (Accounting, Organizations and Society (1985) pp. 381–414), this paper develops the concept of the arena as being dependent upon a process of translation (Latour, B., Science in Action, 1987). The process of translation is elaborated through a study of the genesis of the standard setting programme in the U.K.
