Instructions and help for using the AASB website.
How to search the AASB website
There are a number of ways of searching the AASB website:
• Quick search: The blue Quick Search box appears on the right-hand side of every page and enables you to enter keywords to search for the latest pronouncements (Standards, Interpretations and Conceptual Framework documents).
• Search by reporting period: This search lists pronouncements relevant to the specified annual reporting period, along with related documents. Allows searching by keywords, pronouncement number or title.
• Browse for pronouncements: This function lists principal and compiled versions of pronouncements, either the latest or all versions.
• Specific document search: This search helps you to find particular pronouncements, including amending standards (and also work-in-progress documents and supporting documents). Search by document type, number and/or title.
• RDR early application versions: This links to a table of Standards and Interpretations that incorporate the Reduced Disclosure Requirements (RDR) set out in AASB 2010-2. The search functions listed above do not apply to these versions.
Work in Progress
• Open for comment: This function lists proposal documents for which the comment period either has not yet closed or has closed recently. Includes comment deadlines and links to related pronouncements.
• Pending: This function lists proposal documents no longer open for comment that have not yet been superseded by later proposal documents or pronouncements. Links to related pronouncements, comment letters received and AASB submissions.
• Specific document search: This search helps you to find particular work-in-progress documents (and also pronouncements and supporting documents). Search by document type, number and/or title.
• Work in progress: This function lists superseded proposal documents. Links to related pronouncements, comment letters received and AASB submissions.
• Specific document search: This search helps you to find particular archived pronouncements, work-in-progress documents and supporting documents. Search by document type, number and/or title. A post-2005 pronouncement is archived only when it has been superseded for all of the mandatory reporting periods to which it relates.
• Quick search: The blue Quick Search box appears on the right-hand side of every page and enables you to enter keywords to search all materials on the website – excluding the documents subject to the Pronouncements, Work in Progress, and Archive searches noted above.
Searching by keywords
Search results are ranked based on the search term or phrase appearing in document titles and then by frequency of occurrence of the search term or phrase in documents.
When searching the website by keywords, please use only alphabetical characters (a-z), numbers, spaces or double quotation marks.
Use double quotation marks to search for specific phrases. For example, searching for “segment reporting” will ensure that only items containing the exact phrase specified will appear in the search results.
Searching for specific phrases without using double quotation marks will return items containing all the search terms, whether or not in the form of the specific phrase desired.
Single quotation marks and apostrophes entered as part of the search term are ignored in the search.
