The IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group contributes to the development of the IFRS Taxonomy by providing technical advice to the International Accounting Standards Board (the Board) on taxonomy related issues.

The Board is currently seeking applications for membership of the IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group to fill two open positions. The deadline for applications for membership is Thursday 1 June 2017. Please indicate your interest by sending a curriculum vitae and a brief description of how you meet the criteria to Francesca Falkner, ffalkner@ifrs.org.

More about the IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group
The IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group was set up in 2014. Members are asked to review changes to the content and technology of the IFRS Taxonomy to assess, among other things, whether those changes accurately reflect the presentation and disclosure requirements of the IFRS Standards. Members also guide the Board and the IFRS Foundation on matters relating to the IFRS Taxonomy and electronic reporting generally. The IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group usually meets face-to-face twice a year for one day in London; additionally members participate in four one-hour conference calls a year.

    Criteria for membership
    Candidates are expected to have taxonomy-related expertise or skills. In particular, the Board is looking for candidates who have an understanding of the IFRS standards and use the IFRS Taxonomy either within a regulator environment or as a preparer or user of structured electronic data. Detailed technical knowledge of the eXtensible Business Reporting Language is desirable but not required. The Board would welcome applications from the Middle East or Africa as this region is not yet represented on the IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group.

    Please note that in line with the IFRS Foundation's usual policy, members of the consultative group will serve on a voluntary, unpaid basis. Travel costs and other expenses will not be reimbursed.
