The IPEV Board was created as an independent body in 2005 and is responsible for maintaining, promoting, monitoring, and updating the IPEV guidelines. The board has an advisory role and gives guidance on the application of the guidelines to all stakeholders in the private equity and venture capital industry, including practitioners, investors, regulators, and auditors.

Due November 27: Please send your comments and suggestions related to the draft update to addressed to David Larsen, IPEV Board vice chair, by Nov. 27, 2015.
