Foreign private issuers that prepare their financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board are not required to submit to the Commission Interactive Data Files, as defined in Rule 11 of Regulation S-T, until the Commission specifies on its website a taxonomy for use by such foreign private issuers in preparing their Interactive Data Files. See The Center for Audit Quality, SEC No-Action Letter (Apr. 8, 2011) at http://www.sec.gov/divisions/corpfin/cf-noaction/2011/caq040811.htm.
