How Has Regulation Affected Your Organization?

Amir Ghandar | June 29, 2015 |

IFAC has launched a global regulation survey to assess the impact of regulation on organizations and individuals.

Eight years on from the onset of financial crises in 2007, global economic discourse is dominated by growth—how to spark it or how to stop it waning. Relentless globalization means that the objective of sustainable growth is shared across jurisdictions, and is dependent on effective collaboration. The effects of recent substantial regulatory change on organizations’ ability to recover, grow, and prosper is highly relevant. IFAC is taking a step back to consider the regulatory landscape as it has evolved, the meaning of good regulation, where it is working, and where problems are emerging.

Professional accountants are deeply and practically involved in regulation, from advising and working within businesses and the public sector to core roles within the workings of regulatory regimes. Because of this, IFAC is especially interested in gaining the insights and opinions of professional accountants from all corners of the world and the profession.

This anonymous, four-minute survey will help IFAC better understand how regulation impacts you and your organization, and how regulation might improve. By participating, you’ll give IFAC, regulators, and policymakers invaluable insights.

Please take the survey today and make sure your voice is heard.
