  • Currency (dk gray) Image

02 Aug 2009

The Financial Crisis Advisory Group (FCAG) – a high level group of recognised leaders with broad experience in international financial markets formed jointly by the IASB and the US FASB – has published its recommendations related to accounting standard-setting activities, and other changes to the international regulatory environment following the global financial crisis.

The report of the FCAG articulates four main principles and contains a series of recommendations to improve the functioning and effectiveness of global standard-setting. The chief areas addressed in the report are:
  • Effective financial reporting
  • Limitations of financial reporting
  • Convergence of accounting standards
  • Standard-setters' independence and accountability
The principles and a summary of the recommendations are set out in an appendix to the Press Release (PDF 30k). The FCAG will reconvene in December to review the progress made on its recommendations.
