It has been nearly five years since the last fundamental update to our website platform. During that time, technology has evolved and so have our priorities. Our new website responds to these changes.
- provides a simpler user interface and more intuitive navigation system;
- supports access from a range of devices, including mobile phones;
- allows users to ‘follow’ projects or groups using tags, and to receive updates on these projects through a ‘dashboard’ and email alerts; and
- provides access to the public website, eIFRS, live Board meeting streams and the IFRS Shop using a single login.
We have also worked hard to simplify information about who we are and what we do. We have:
- introduced a new, streamlined work plan that is presented in a consistent manner across all phases of the standard-setting process;
- provided summaries of IFRS Standards and made it easier to access the Standards themselves;
- made greater use of video content, including an animated video that explains our standard-setting process; and
- introduced an interactive map to navigate information about the use of IFRS Standards around the world.
Finally, we have significantly enhanced resources available to support implementation of IFRS Standards, and introduced dedicated sections that signpost the various programmes and resources available to different stakeholder groups, including investors, standard-setters, regulators and academics.
Further information on how to use the new website features is available here.
Despite the significant amount of work to get us to this point, we know we have more work to do. We plan to make further enhancements in the coming months—and there are bound to be some teething problems, so please bear with us.
We will continue to migrate documents from the archive to the new site, while also putting in place a longer-term solution for storing and providing access to historical documents. In the meantime, the former website will remain accessible as an archive at archive.ifrs.org.
We welcome your feedback on the website—what works well and any further improvements we can make. Please send us an email with your comments.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Chairman of the Board
