03 Jul 2007

The US Securities and Exchange Commission has published the text of its proposal to accept from foreign private issuers their financial statements prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ('IFRS') as published by the International Accounting Standards Board ('IASB') without reconciliation to generally accepted accounting principles ('GAAP') as used in the United States.

The proposal would amend Form 20-F and make conforming changes to Regulation S-X to accept financial statements prepared in accordance with the English language version of IFRS as published by the IASB without reconciliation to US GAAP when contained in the filings of foreign private issuers with the Commission. The proposal notes that "current requirements regarding the reconciliation to U.S. GAAP will not change for a foreign private issuer that uses a basis of accounting other than the English language version of IFRS as published by the IASB".
