IASCF seeks members for two XBRL committees

  • IFRS Foundation (blue) Image

31 Jul 2007

The Trustees of the IASC Foundation have invited applications for membership of two committees relating to the Foundation's work on XBRL – an XBRL Advisory Council (XAC) and an XBRL Quality Review Team (XQRT):

  • The XAC will provide strategic advice to the Trustees and the Foundation's London-based XBRL team on the future development and adoption of the XBRL Taxonomy for International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs). It will comprise ten members who should broadly reflect the diverse areas and professional interests affected by XBRL adoption and the implementation of IFRS taxonomies.
  • The XQRT will review the developed taxonomies and offer strategic advice and practical recommendations on the quality of the IFRS taxonomy.
XBRL (Extensible Business Reporting Language) is an XML-based language that is developed specifically for the automation of business information requirements, such as the preparation, sharing, and analysis of financial reports, statements, and audit schedules. The IASC Foundation has developed a high quality XBRL 'taxonomy' for IFRSs (in effect, a dictionary of data tags that explains what each tagged element is and how it should be treated under IFRSs) that will be maintained in line with the annual Bound Volume of IFRSs.
