The adoption of the new IAS/IFRS international accounting principles
Legislative Decree No. 38/2005 implemented the adoption of the international accounting principles into our legislative framework, providing for the mandatory use of IAS/IFRS in the consolidated financial statements of listed companies, banks, supervised financial intermediaries, companies with shares or bonds disseminated among the public and insurance enterprises.
