Changes to ifrs.org: Frequently asked questions

What’s changing when the new website goes live?

You will see a number of changes when the new website goes live in April 2021. These include:

  • eIFRS content will now be incorporated into the main site.
  • Subscriber access to innovative tools such as a new Standards navigator, enhanced search functionality and improved personalisation.
  • A new ‘follows’ system—more details will be released in due course.

If you are an existing subscriber to either eIFRS Basic (free-of-charge subscription offering access to core IFRS Standards) or eIFRS Professional (the paid-for service to access all current and historic content related to IFRS Standards), you will get automatic access to the equivalent new service. You will also be able to access the old eIFRS platform until it is decommissioned at the end of December 2021. Upon first log in to the new system, you will be asked to update your registration details.

If you currently access eIFRS Professional without having to sign in with a username and password, it means you have direct access through a third party that has a licence agreement with the Foundation. The Foundation is working with all licence holders to provide you with access to the new services. Please liaise directly with your licence holder.

Why are you changing the website and eIFRS?

The main objective of these changes is to enhance your experience of our website and our content, making it more easily searchable and providing tools to help you personalise how you access the Standards and other content.

How have you decided on what changes to make?

We initially identified which of our platforms needed an update to keep them relevant and useful. Then we consulted with various stakeholder groups through surveys, research and one-to-one conversations, asking them about the functionality and tools they’d like to see updated. We have based the changes on the information gathered through these channels.

When are these changes taking place?

All changes will go live in April 2021. The archive site, archive.ifrs.org, will be decommissioned at the same time. The legacy eifrs.ifrs.org platform will remain accessible until the end of 2021.

What do I need to do and when?

There is nothing for users to do in the immediate future, but you will be asked to take action when the changes go live.

If you are already a registered user, you will keep the same username and password, but will be asked to update your personal details upon your first login after the new site goes live. At this point, you will also be able to decide which categories of content to follow; we will be publishing a guide on how to do this in March.

If you access eIFRS without having to sign in with a username and password, it means you have direct access through a third party that has a licence agreement with the Foundation. The Foundation is working with all licence holders to provide you with access to the new service. Please liaise directly with your licence holder.

We plan to keep most page links the same as before, but suggest you check any bookmarked links at the appropriate time.

Will I have to re-register?

No—your username and password will remain as is. You will, however, be asked to update your details upon your first login after the launch date.

Has all the content been moved from archive.ifrs.org to ifrs.org?

The vast majority has been moved. If there is something you cannot find, please email our Customer Services team at customerservices@ifrs.org.
