The International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) has released a finalised 'prototype' of its integrated reporting framework (stylised as '<IR>') and reaffirmed the expected timing of the issue of a consultative document as it moves towards finalisation of the framework by the end of 2013.

The prototype document has been drafted through the parallel efforts of a number of topic-specific collaboration groups, the IIRC’s Technical Task Force and the IIRC Secretariat, and takes into consideration constituent feedback received on the IIRC's 2011 Discussion Paper.

The finalised prototype framework follows on from the announcement of the prototype at a September 2012 IIRC conference, which itself followed a draft framework document which was released in July 2012.  Compared to the draft document, the prototype framework is substantially broader in its content, with significant fleshing out of the core principles, concepts and guidance.

In conjunction with the release of the final prototype document, the IIRC has confirmed that it expects to publish a formal 'consultation draft' of the framework in April 2013, to be followed by the final framework, dubbed “version 1.0″, in December 2013.
