The IFRS Foundation (IFRSF) has added 15 new jurisdiction profiles on the use of IFRS to bring the total of profiles completed to 81 jurisdictions. With the addition of the new profiles, the IFRSF completes the second phase of its initiative to assess the progress of jurisdictions using IFRSs.

Newly added to the earlier 66 profiles have been profiles for Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.

The IFRSF has been using information from various sources to develop the profiles about the use of IFRSs in individual jurisdictions. We are proud that IAS Plus with the assistance of our Deloitte member firms has been able to help the IFRS Foundation with this ambitious project, which is led by Paul Pacter, former IASB member and former webmaster of IAS Plus who originally set up our popular table on the use of IFRSs around the world which has been supplemented recently by the more detailed table on the use of IFRSs by the G20 jurisdictions.

The profiles and analyses are available on the IASB website.
