The Committee of European Banking Supervisors has published revised guidelines on financial reporting (FINREPrev2).

The revision of the guidelines is part of CEBS's effort to enhance and streamline reporting requirements for supervised institutions. CEBS recommends that EU Member States make the guidelines mandatory effective 1 January 2012 (CEBS's current authority is limited to making recommendations). In releasing the guidelines CEBS states:

IAS/IFRS amendments. In order to avoid redundant and costly IT system changes CEBS will take into account agreed changes to IAS/IFRSs before starting implementing the revised FINREP framework (in particular, the recent IASB project on IAS 39 replacement and the proposal on IAS 1). A dedicated team consisting of accounting and reporting experts will monitor IASB proposals in order to assess the impacts on the FINREP framework. The revised guidelines on financial reporting will be reviewed in due course to take account of changes that are agreed in the future.
