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