How do we help support consistent application of IFRS Accounting Standards and IFRIC Interpretations?

The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the IFRS Interpretations Committee (Interpretations Committee) carry out a number of activities to support the understanding and consistent application of IFRS Accounting Standards.

Supporting materials include:

  • educational materials;
  • webcasts and webinars;
  • articles;
  • Transition Resource Group meeting summaries; and
  • Interpretations Committee Agenda Decisions.

Agenda decisions are published when the Interpretations Committee decides that a standard-setting project should not be added to the work plan. In many cases, agenda decisions include explanatory material that explains how the applicable principles and requirements in IFRS Accounting Standards apply to the transaction or fact pattern described in the agenda decision. Explanatory material derives its authority from the Accounting Standards themselves (that material cannot add or change requirements in IFRS Accounting Standards). Accordingly, an entity is required to apply the applicable IFRS Accounting Standard(s), reflecting the explanatory material in an agenda decision (subject to it having sufficient time to implement that accounting). Agenda decisions can be found linked to applicable Accounting Standards in the tabs above.

To receive news about new supporting materials please sign in and follow the Accounting Standards that interest you.
