IFAC guidance on corporate governance addresses risks and organizational accountability

The International Good Practice Guidance provides a framework and principles-based guidance for professional accountants in business and their organizations on evaluating and improving governance in organizations.

The new International Good Practice Guidance to professional accountants in business includes a framework, a series of fundamental principles, supporting guidance, and references on how they can contribute to evaluating and improving governance in organizations.


It is designed to complement existing governance codes, such as the OECD Principles of Corporate Governance by encouraging organizations to achieve a balance between conformance with rules and regulations and driving organizational performance. It also focuses on how to create sustainable stakeholder value in the form of good products or services, economic profitability, job security, safety, or other social or economical responsibilities.
