EFRAG User Panel

The EFRAG User Panel provides input, from a user perspective, on important and topical accounting issues that EFRAG's Technical Expert Group (EFRAG TEG) are 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. You can find a short brochure setting out why users should be involved and how they can be involved here.

The European Commission  and the IASB have been granted observer status.
