New EU procedure for endorsing IFRSs

20 Nov 2006

A new step has been added to the procedure for endorsing IFRSs (including Interpretations) for use in Europe.

The European Commission will be required to submit its endorsement proposals to a Committee of the European Parliament, known as the Regulatory Procedure with Scrutiny Committee. That Committee will give its opinion on endorsement to the Commission within a time frame determined on a case by case basis. If the Committee agrees with the Commission's recommendation, the recommendation goes to the European Parliament and Council for approval, as at present. If, however, the Committee does not agree with the Commission's recommendation, the matter will go directly to the Council. If the Council supports the Commission's recommendation, the matter will go to Parliament for action. If the Council does not support the Commission's recommendation, the Commission will be asked to reconsider the matter and submit a new recommendation. Click for:
