The Committee of European Securities Regulators (CESR) recommends that any public company reporting financial statements under U.S. rules to a regulator in the 25-member European Union (EU) merely disclose the differences between the American and international rules, rather than reconciling the two different standards.

The recommendation follows last week’s statement from the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) that European companies following international accounting standards may be allowed to report those figures without reconciling them to the U.S. rules as early as 2007 according to the Wall St. Journal.
