The International Accounting Standards Board (Board) is seeking candidates to join the IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group from 1 April 2020. The IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group contributes to the development of the IFRS Taxonomy by providing regular input on taxonomy-related issues.
The IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group provides advice to the Board and the IFRS Foundation on the content and technology of the IFRS Taxonomy. Members assess the feasibility of proposed changes to the IFRS Taxonomy and provide advice on whether such changes accurately reflect the presentation and disclosure requirements in IFRS Standards.
The IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group usually meets in London for a full day twice a year. Members also participate in about four one-hour conference calls a year, depending on the number and complexity of topics for discussion.
Members are drawn from a variety of business and geographical backgrounds. The Board is keen to appoint members with professional experience as preparers or users of electronic financial reports prepared using the IFRS Taxonomy. Technical knowledge of the eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) is desirable, but not required.
In line with the IFRS Foundation's usual policy, members of the IFRS Taxonomy Consultative Group receive neither pay nor reimbursement for travel costs or other expenses.
Any data you provide to the IFRS Foundation will only be used for this group member selection. The IFRS Foundation will retain such data no longer than is necessary for that purpose, in accordance with its data retention policy and all applicable data protection laws.
