  • [01] Financial reporting : Commission proposes requirement for listed companies to use International Accounting Standards by 2005 The European Commission has presented a proposal for a Regulation that would require all EU companies listed on a regulated market, including banks and insurance companies, to prepare consolidated accounts in accordance with International Accounting Standards (IAS). This requirement would enter into force at the latest in 2005. Member States would have the option to extend this requirement to unlisted companies and to the production of individual accounts. The Regulation would help eliminate barriers to cross-border trading in securities by ensuring that company accounts throughout the EU are more transparent and can be more easily compared. This would in turn increase market efficiency and reduce the cost of raising capital for companies. The proposal is a priority measure under the Financial Services Action Plan (see IP/00/1269), endorsed by the Lisbon European Council as a key element of the creation of an integrated financial services market. It is also in line with the strategy outlined in the Commission's June 2000 Communication on the future of financial reporting in Europe (see IP/00/606).
  • [02] Publication d'une évaluation du risque géographique d'ESB pour le Botswana, la Lituanie, la Namibie, le Nicaragua et le Swaziland Le comité scientifique directeur (CSD), qui conseille la Commission européenne dans les questions qui concernent notamment l'ESB, a publié aujourd'hui son avis sur le risque géographique d'encéphalopathie spongiforme bovine au Botswana, en Lituanie, en Namibie, au Nicaragua et au Swaziland. Le comité conclut à la présence probable d'ESB dans le cheptel bovin lituanien et à la présence très improbable de bétail infecté par l'agent de l'ESB dans les troupeaux domestiques du Botswana, de la Namibie, du Nicaragua et du Swaziland.
