The Financial Security Law of France (known in France as LSF or Loi de sécurité financière), signed by the Minister of Finance, Francis Mer, was adopted by the French Parliament on July 17, 2003 in order to strengthen the legal provisions relating to corporate governance. The LSF was published in OJ No. 177, August 2, 2003 (No. 2003-706 dated August 1, 2003).

Similar to the American Sarbanes–Oxley Act, the Financial Security Law of France rests mainly on:

  • An increased responsibility of leaders
  • A strengthening of internal control
  • A reduction in the sources of conflicts of interest [1]
