The Malaysian Accounting Standards Board (MASB) has issued Statement of Principles 3 'Management Commentary' (SOP 3), which is equivalent to the IASB IFRS Practice Statement 'Management Commentary'.

The issue of SOP 3 follows a formal consultation process begun in May 2012. Consistent with the IASB IFRS Practice Statement, the SOP provides non-mandatory guidance for Malaysian entities opting to to accompany financial statements with management commentary, setting out the principles, qualitative characteristics and elements of management commentary.
