STATEMENT: Russian Federation Membership of the CRF

03 March 2023
The CRF exists to promote liaison, co-operation and discussion among Members and it has never been more important to work collaboratively, to enable our corporate register members across the world to come together and share best practice globally.  It is vitally important to us that every event we hold preserves these ideals and builds greater harmony, trust, and mutual respect among our member organisations.

The Executive Committee, at its meeting of 21 February 2023, considered that, in light of the Russian Federation’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine and the significant international turmoil it has caused, the continued membership of the Russian Federation (Federal Tax Service of Russia) is not in the interests of the CRF.

No appeal was received before the deadline of 1200UTC on 28 February 2023 and, as a result, the expulsion has come into effect.
