IFRS STANDARDS AS ISSUED BY THE IASB

Registering at the IFRS Foundation website (www.ifrs.org) gives access to the current year's unaccompanied IFRSs and there is also free access to the technical summaries of the standards in a number of languages. Access to the full range of official IFRS documentation is by subscription, and this gives access to the current version of the Green Book – a guide through IFRS which contains useful educational material as well as the full text of the Red Book and Blue Book which contain the IFRSs and accompanying material such as bases for conclusions.

The IFRS Foundation also maintains a comprehensive list of educational material on IFRS, which can be accessed at http://www.ifrs.org/Use-around-the-world/Education/Pages/Learning-Resources.aspx.
