The GIPS Executive Committee seeks comment on the proposed new requirement for firms that claim compliance with the GIPS standards to notify CFA Institute of such claim. The purpose of this new requirement is to address the expressed requests of various stakeholders across the globe for more information related to compliance with the GIPS standards.
