ONE of South Africa's foremost experts in financial reporting standards, Linda de Beer, has been appointed to chair the Financial Reporting Investigations Panel from January 1, replacing Harvey Wainer, chairman since its inception in 2002.
The role of the panel is to investigate and advise the JSE on alleged cases of noncompliance with International Financial Reporting Standards in annual and interim reports, and any other company publications. The panel is a joint venture with the JSE and the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (Saica) and has considered 50 separate cases.
