Q & A Database
The GIPS Standards Q&A database contains questions and answers (Q&As) on various searchable topics that provide additional interpretation on an issue. Q&As are considered to be authoritative guidance and must be followed in order to claim compliance with the GIPS standards.
Content from prior Q&As was included in the GIPS Standards Handbook as much as possible and many Q&As were archived. Change the Status drop-down filter to "Archived" to see the archived Q&As.
The GIPS Standards Helpdesk is available for individual questions and typically responds to inquiries within 3 business days.
Search by category, status, date range, and/or keyword.

Do the disclosures have to be included on the same page as the rest of the composite information?
The disclosures do not necessarily have to be on the same page as the “chart” that includes annual composite and benchmark returns, number of portfolios in the composite, etc., but it must be part of the presentation that includes the claim of compliance with the Standards.
