European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG)

The EFRAG User Panel provides input, from a user perspective, on important and topical accounting issues that EFRAG's Technical Expert Group (EFRAG TEG) is considering. The EFRAG User Panel has three physical meetings in Brussels combined with three conference calls in between the meetings.

EFRAG is calling on the user community to be involved in EFRAG’s activities. Investors have an important role to play in improving the quality of financial reporting and ensure that IFRS provide investors and other capital providers (users of financial statements) with the information they need to support investment decisions and build trust in the capital markets. Here is a short brochure setting out why users should be involved and how they can be involved.

Corporate Reporting Users’ Forum (CRUF)

The CRUF is a discussion group that was established in 2005.  It was set up for learning about and responding to the many accounting and regulatory changes that affect corporate reporting.

CRUF participants include buy-side and sell-side analysts, credit ratings analysts, fund managers and corporate governance professionals. The forum includes individuals with global or regional responsibilities from around the world. The CRUF meets in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, UK and USA. Its mission is to put the user back into the heart of the evolution of the corporate reporting model. For further information about CRUF, go to the website.

International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN)

Established in 1995 as an investor-led organisation, the ICGN's mission is to promote effective standards of corporate governance and investor stewardship to advance efficient markets and sustainable economies worldwide.

ICGN has five policy committees, each aligning with one of their policy priorities. The Disclosure and Transparency Committee seeks to influence policymakers and other stakeholders to enhance company transparency through robust reporting, audit and metrics. The Committee responds to regulatory consultations, producing and promoting ICGN Guidelines, Viewpoints and other relevant, ad hoc projects. 

Specific topics include accounting issues, audit quality, integrated reporting, and ESG disclosure. Our policy positions are guided by the ICGN Global Governance Principles and Global Stewardship Principles, which are implemented by:

  • Influencing policy by providing a reliable source of investor opinion on governance and stewardship;
  • Connecting peers at global events to enhance dialogue between companies and investors around long-term value creation; and
  • Informing dialogue through education to enhance the professionalism of governance and stewardship practices.
