On 31 January 2014 the Crown Dependencies of Guernsey and Jersey jointly issued draft Guidance Notes (in conjunction with the Isle of Man) on the implementation of obligations arising under the  intergovernmental agreements ("IGAs") signed by each island with the UK in October 2013 and  with the US in December 2013. The draft Guidance Notes, as currently published, are substantially the same for each island, subject to certain island-specific differences. The current draft is to be to be regarded as a work in progress and the views of local industry in each island are being sought.
