04 Nov 2015

The Trustees of the IFRS Foundation have published for public comment proposed amendments to the due process for the development and maintenance of the IFRS Taxonomy, which would give the IASB greater involvement and responsibility.

The main proposed amendments would require:

  • IASB approval of IFRS content reflecting new or amended standards;
  • review by three to five members of the IASB of content reflecting common practice;
  • formalisation of the enhancements that were implemented in January 2014 (creation of the IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group and establishment of a process that seeks public consultation on IFRS Taxonomy updates that are released during the year); and
  • inclusion of enhancements that reflect current practices and processes, but are not documented in the Due Process Handbook for XBRL Activities.

Please click to access the press release and the invitation to comment on the proposed amendments on the IASB website. Comments are requested by 3 February 2016.
