Setting the Standards of Practice for IR

One of NIRI's roles is to set standards of practice for the investor relations profession. The NIRI Board of Directors is responsible for defining and prioritizing the standards, forming broad-based working groups, conducting research, and developing standards documents for approval. The NIRI staff and Board will review standards periodically to assure that recommended practice is current. 

NIRI has developed standards that address disclosure, earnings release content, and notice and access for distributing proxy materials. NIRI members may access electronic copies via the links below.
