The GIPS Standard Setting Process

  • Responsive to market needs

    The GIPS® standards evolve in response to market needs. You can share your ideas by contacting the GIPS standards Help Desk, contacting your local GIPS Standards Sponsor, or volunteering for GIPS standards committees.

  • Developed through consensus

    The GIPS® standards are developed and maintained through a consensus-building process that includes decision-making by volunteer representatives from the GIPS standards user community and input received through public consultations.

  • Jointly authorized

    The GIPS® standards are jointly approved by CFA Institute and the GIPS Standards Technical Committee to ensure that they are both fit for purpose and embody the highest ethical principles of full disclosure and fair representation.
