The Peer Review Process

All members of the Global Forum, as well as jurisdictions identified by the Global Forum as relevant to its work, are undergoing reviews of their implementation of the standards of transparency and exchange of information in tax matters. The reviews take place in two phases. Phase 1 reviews examine the legal and regulatory framework for transparency and the exchange of information for tax purposes. Phase 2 reviews look into the implementation of the standards in practice. Combined reviews evaluate both the legal and regulatory framework (Phase 1) and the implementation of the standards in practice (Phase 2).
