Purpose - We investigate the influence of corporate governance mechanisms on Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institution (AAOIFI) governance disclosure in Islamic Banks.

Design/methodology/approach - To test our research hypotheses, we create a comprehensive AAOIFI governance disclosure index and use regression analysis for a sample of Islamic banks for the financial years within the period 2013-2015. 

Findings - We find that audit committee size is the main determinant of the AAOIFI governance disclosure.

Originality/value - The research contributes to Islamic accounting literature, by identifying the driver for the AAOIFI governance disclosure for Islamic banks that mandatorily adopt AAOIFI standards.
