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 associated Methodology for Assessing the Implementation
of the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance was developed by the OECD Corporate
Governance Committee, with the participation of the World Bank, to underpin an assessment
of the implementation of the Principles in a jurisdiction and to 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. This latest version incorporates
changes that were made to the Principles during the 2015 review as well as a number
of additional clarifications.
