Guidance Statements

Guidance statements are written in response to questions that raise new issues beyond the scope of the simple application of the GIPS standards. Guidance Statements include authoritative guidance on a particular topic and may contain additional topic specific requirements and/or recommendations. Firms must comply with all guidance statements. Current Guidance Statements are the final and latest version of the guidance statement.

Each guidance statement is developed by experts on the GIPS governing committees using a rigorous process of review and public comment. Learn about the development process and check out the current exposure drafts of guidance statements in development.
