OECD updates governance assessment methodology

The OECD has published its revised Methodology for Assessing the Implementation of the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance. The latest version incorporates changes that were made to the Principles during the 2015 review as well as a number of additional clarifications. The Methodology was developed by the OECD Corporate Governance Committee, together with the World Bank, to underpin an assessment of the implementation of the Principles in any given jurisdiction.

About the OECD Principles

OECD Corporate Governance Principles

The G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance help policy makers evaluate and improve the legal, regulatory, and institutional framework for corporate governance, with a view to supporting economic efficiency, sustainable growth and financial stability. They are one of the Key Standards for Sound Financial Systems adopted by the Financial Stability Board (FSB).  The Principles provide a framework for policy discussions, for example in the context of the Reviews of Observance of Standards and Codes (ROSCs) or other country assessments.

The OECD Principles are the foundation for Manifest’s voting guidelines and assessment of corporate governance disclosures by quoted companies .
