Organizations that claim compliance with the GIPS standards are required to notify CFA Institute of their claim of compliance by submitting a GIPS Compliance Notification Form. Organizations that are newly claiming compliance with the GIPS standards must submit the GIPS Compliance Notification Form prior to publicly claiming compliance. Once an organization claims compliance, it must submit an updated GIPS Compliance Notification Form annually, between 1 January and 30 June of each year.
