Among other things, ESMA calls on listed companies to start implementing IFRS 9 as soon as possible in light of the need for consistent and high-quality implementation of IFRS 9.

ESMA furthermore highlights that listed companies should be transparent towards investors on the impact of IFRS 9 on the financial position and the financial performance of the company. ESMA reaffirms the need for consistent and high-quality implementation of IFRS 9 and the need for transparency on its impact to users of financial statements.
