You can also manage your email alerts.



How do I access the Standards?


Please note that eIFRS Basic users will need to upgrade to eIFRS Professional in order to access the Standards via the eIFRS Web App. To find out more please read the How to become an eIFRS Professional user Guide.

Navigate to the Standards page:

Preview

Select which collection you would like to read, and decide whether you want to store this for offline use. If you wish to read it online select the book title and then the chapter title, if you want to read it offline, select store and the eIFRS Web App will cache the collection for offline viewing.

Please note: eIFRS Web App uses the latest HTML5 technology to permit offline access to the Standards.  We recommend that when storing a collection you use a Wi-Fi connection to avoid using up your mobile data allowance.  Some Android™ devices may require you to navigate to the Standard downloaded from your downloads queue to display.


If you need any more assistance, please email us at publications@ifrs.org.

 

How many Standards collections can I store for offline access?

This is dependent on the cache restrictions of your individual device, but we expect that you will be able to download two Books, the IFRS for SMEs and new Standards (e.g. the Blue and Red Book, plus the IFRS for SMEs and the new and revised Standards).

 

How do I logout?

To logout, please select the "i" button on the top right-hand side, scroll to the bottom of this menu and click logout. Please note: this will remove any stored collections.


Why can’t I log in?


You need to be an eIFRS Basic user or an eIFRS Professional user to access the eIFRS Web App.
Please use your eIFRS log in details to access the eIFRS Web App. If you need any more assistance, please email us at publications@ifrs.org.

Please note: we use cookies to complete your log in and to keep you logged in every time the eIFRS Web App is launched in the same browser. You will need to login again if you are using a different browser or mobile device, or if the cookie expires.

If you are having problems logging in, please ensure that your Subscription has not expired and that you are connected to the Internet.

How do I check if I am an eIFRS Basic user or an eIFRS Professional user?


An eIFRS Basic user has signed up for free content on the www.ifrs.org or eIFRS website. They will have access to the Standards without accompanying materials. An eIFRS Professional user is a user who has purchased a subscription from the IFRS Web Shop and has access to the full Standards, accompanying documents and the eIFRS Archive.

We suggest that when storing a collection you use a Wi-Fi connection to avoid using up your mobile data allowance. Some Android™ devices may require you to navigate to the Standard downloaded from your downloads queue to display.

If you need any more assistance, please email us at publications@ifrs.org.


How many items are shown on the News and Calendar feeds?


The News and Calendar feeds show the ten most recent news stories and events. If you want to search for a particular event or news item, please use www.ifrs.org.


Will downloaded content remain on my device permanently?


Downloaded content is stored in your browser’s application cache. The amount of storage space allocated varies by device but it is usually around 50mb, or approximately two Bound Volumes' worth of PDF files. If you reach the maximum allowable content size, the browser may remove older cached items. In these instances, re-downloading the content will be necessary to access the Standards once again.

Your device cache can be cleared in a number of ways, for example:

 

  • by you logging out of the eIFRS Web App; or
  • by upgrading your device's operating system or browser or restoring from a back-up; or
  • by changing the settings: for example, on iOS devices, through Settings → Safari → Clear Cookies and Data; or through swiping the item: Safari → Advanced → Website Data → eifrs.ifrs.org → Delete. Or for example, on Android™ devices, open your browser menu and choose Settings → Privacy & Security → Clear cache → OK

 

 

How long does each download take?

This depends on the particular collection being downloaded and your Internet connection speed. When storing the collection we recommend that you use a Wi-Fi connection to avoid using up your data allowance. The file size of a typical collection is around [20MB].


How long can I keep the Standards on my device?


The content remains accessible until your eIFRS Professional subscription expires. Please note that you must be an eIFRS Professional user to access the Standards via the eIFRS Web App.

If you log out of the eIFRS Web App your collections will no longer be stored.


Do I need Internet access to use the eIFRS Web App?


The first time you access the eIFRS Web App, you will have to be connected to the Internet. We recommend that you connect via a Wi-Fi connection to avoid using up your mobile data allowance. After this point and during the course of your subscription, you can access the Standards offline, but please note that they will not necessarily be the most up-to-date version. To ensure that you have the most up-to-date information, we recommend that you stay connected to the Internet. Also, please note that the 'Projects Work Plan' and 'My eIFRS' areas are only available online.


What can I use when the eIFRS Web App is offline?


You will be able to access all previously downloaded content, but you may miss content added since you were last connected to the Internet. Please note that you will require an Internet connection in order to access the 'Projects Work Plan' and 'My eIFRS'.


Do I need new login details for the eIFRS Web App?


No, you only need to be an eIFRS Basic user or an eIFRS Professional user to access the eIFRS Web App. Please use your eIFRS log in details to enter the eIFRS Web App. If you need any more assistance, please email us at publications@ifrs.org or use the feedback button on the eIFRS Web App (under the ”i” icon) or call us on +44 (0)207 332 2730.
