Speaker: Lise Chorques

Acteo is an association whose main object is to assure the participation of major French companies in the international harmonisation of accounting standards. It has successfully pursued this objective for over 20 years.
It has taken note of the recent developments in the establishment of European electronic reporting databases and the rapid expansion of requirements for the harmonised reporting of non-financial data. In view of its observation it has recently broadened the objective of the association to include participation in other topics closely related to financial reporting such as ESEF and the harmonisation of non-financial reporting requirements .
