In the context of the issues that the global economy is facing, one of the main concerns of the regulative authorities, of the professional organizations, and of entities was and still is identifying the risk factors that affect the systems of corporative governance and the systems and processes through which the supply of reliable information in the decision-making process is insured. Another concern is identifying reliable solutions for insuring the implementation of a proactive and prospective risk management that makes a mark on the utility of the information presented and communicated to the targeted users, especially through accounting reporting. Hence, through the necessity of insuring the transparency and the utility of accounting information, in this chapter, the role of corporate governance, in improving the process of accounting reporting and as a consequence of the value of accounting information, will be synthetically presented.
