Media Advisory – XBRL Canada to host Webinar discussing SEC Announcement requiring XBRL for IFRS Reporting Issuers

Toronto, Ontario - XBRL Canada will be hosting a webinar on May 24th, 2017 to discuss the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) announcement requiring Foreign Private Issuers (FPIs) that report using International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) to file their periodic reports using XBRL.
On March 1, 2017 the SEC published a taxonomy on its website to enable FPIs that prepare their financial statements in accordance with IFRS to tag those reports using XBRL.
FPIs that prepare their financial statements in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB may begin immediately to submit their financial statements in XBRL. Otherwise, all such FPIs must submit their financial statements in XBRL for fiscal periods ending on or after December 15, 2017.
XBRL Canada will host an information session providing an introduction to XBRL and provide an overview of the reporting requirements for SEC Reporting Issuers affected by this announcement.
The Webinar will be held on May 24, 2017 at 2 PM ET. Registration for the event is available at http://www.newsfilecorp.com/XBRL/ifrsXBRLWebinarXBRLCanada.php
