Statement on fair value from French regulators

  • France Image

28 Oct 2008

Four French accounting and regulatory authorities have issued a joint recommendation to address the accounting treatment of certain financial instruments that can 'no longer be reliably priced on the market because of the ongoing turmoil'.

Essentially, the group supports the guidance recently provided by the IASB and FASB in this regard. The four French authorities are the national accounting board (Conseil national de la comptabilité), securities regulator (Autorité des marchés financiers), banking supervisor (Commission bancaire) and insurance oversight authority (Autorité de contrôle des assurances et des mutuelles).
