The Financial Stability Board (FSB) has published an updated version of its Handbook for FSB Peer Reviews (the Handbook). The update takes into account comments from the members who sit on the FSB Standing Committee on Standards Implementation (the Committee). The Committee’s work is to develop a framework for FSB peer reviews and it prepared the original version of the Handbook in December 2009.

The Handbook sets out guidelines for the conduct of FSB peer reviews. Section 1 of the Handbook describes peer reviews in the broader context of the FSB’s implementation monitoring framework, and covers the process used to develop the Handbook and provides an overview of the two types of peer review as well as the different stages in the review process. Section 2 of the Handbook describes the overall objectives of FSB peer reviews and the principles that underlie the process. Sections 3 to 7 of the Handbook detail the different stages of the reviews, distinguishing where appropriate between the two types of reviews.
