2018 IFRS 'Blue Book' in new format

19 Jan, 2018

The IFRS Foundation announces that the annual publication formerly known as the 'Blue Book' is now available.

As before, the publication contains all official pronouncements that are mandatory on 1 January 2018. It does not include IFRSs with an effective date after 1 January 2018. This is reflected by the publication's new title Required IFRS Standards 2018.

The former Blue Book (the colour remains unchanged) is now offered in two versions:

  • Required IFRS Standards 2018
  • Annotated Required IFRS Standards 2018

The latter includes the same content as Required IFRS Standards 2018 with additional annotations and explanatory material.

Please click for more information about the content and ordering details on the IASB website.

The IFRS Foundation also notes that the former Red Book will be published in two versions as well, as Issued IFRS Standards 2018 and Annotated Issued IFRS Standards 2018. These publications are currently expected to be available in March 2018.
