The Consultation Draft of the International <IR> Framework (the Framework) was released on Tuesday 16 April 2013 in 10 global capital markets, including Melbourne. A 90 day consultation period follows, ending on Monday 15 July 2013.
During the consultation period the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) seeks to gain active participation from stakeholders through a series of technical workshops to encourage debate and formal feedback on the consultation questions. This feedback will be considered by the IIRC in preparation of the International <IR> Framework v1.0, scheduled for release in December 2013.
For version 1.0 of the Framework to reflect the needs of businesses, the providers of financial capital across markets and other stakeholders, we need to ensure that as many voices as possible are heard during the Consultation Draft Period. The workshop will provide an opportunity for you to deepen your understanding of the <IR> Framework, as well as <IR> in the broader context.
You are therefore invited to participate in a workshop to be led by Mr Michael Nugent, Technical Director of the IIRC. For registration and furhter details email firstname.lastname@example.org
