IOSCO looks to understand CRA products: The board of IOSCO has approved a project specification for its Committee on CRAs to gain a better understanding of the credit rating industry. To begin work on this project, the committee has published a questionnaire for providers of "other" CRA Products to answer by 23 March. The second stage will focus on gathering information on how issuers and investors and, more generally, users of the other CRA Products and services use and understand them.
