 Update 2 to the IFRS Taxonomy 2016 - Files and Support Materials

The IFRS Taxonomy is the XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) representation of the IFRS Standards including International Accounting Standards, Interpretations, and the IFRS for SMEs (Small and Medium-sized Entities), as issued by the IASB.  

XBRL taxonomies are available for most of the major national financial reporting standards around the world, and the IFRS Taxonomy is intended for use by entities reporting in IFRS. By providing the IFRS Taxonomy, the IFRS Foundation seeks to address the demand for an electronic standard to transmit IFRS financial information.
