Monitoring of developments in accounting and auditing standards: CEBS will continue to monitor the developments in the area of international accounting and auditing standards and, if deemed necessary, provide input to the standard setting process.

Common reporting frameworks: CEBS will update on an ongoing basis its reporting frameworks and the related XBRL taxonomies, in order to accommodate any developments in international accounting standards changes required by the implementation of the CRD. A web-based facility, accessible to both supervisors and market participants, will be established to collect and address questions emerging in the implementation of the reporting frameworks.
