SEC, UK FSA And UK FRC Sign Protocol for Sharing Information on IFRS Application

The Securities and Exchange Commission, the United Kingdom Financial Services Authority (FSA), and the United Kingdom Financial Reporting Council (FRC) have signed a protocol for implementing the work plan between the SEC and the Committee of European Securities Regulators to share information on the application of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) by issuers listed in the UK and the US. At separate meetings with the FSA and FRC in London, SEC chairman Christopher Cox executed the Protocol with UK FSA chairman Callum McCarthy and UK FRC chief executive Paul Boyle to facilitate implementation of the SEC-CESR Work Plan. The information to be shared concerns the application of IFRS in the financial statements of issuers listed in the UK and registered with the SEC. The world’s capital markets stand to benefit significantly from widespread acceptance and use of global accounting standards that are high quality, comprehensive, and rigorously applied. With issuers and investors alike increasingly looking beyond their borders for opportunities to invest and raise capital, they are typically seeking the accuracy, timeliness, and consistency in the reporting of financial information that such standards could provide.
