XBRL

The XBRL project takes a two-phased approach.

The objective of Phase 1 is to consult with key stakeholders to understand how XBRL is actually being used in different jurisdictions as it relates to the filing of an entity's financial statements and how the IAASB should address the public interest considerations when auditors are associated with XBRL data.

The objective of Phase 2 is to apply the findings of the consultation in developing a pronouncement:

  • To address the performance and reporting expectations of the auditor in connection with audited financial statements that are accompanied by XBRL data and,
  • If deemed necessary, to discuss the considerations relevant when audited financial statements are only filed in XBRl.
