SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 30, 2009, the Commission adopted rules to require domestic public companies and foreign private issuers 1 that prepare their financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP), and foreign private issuers that prepare their financial statements using International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), to provide their financial statements to the Commission and on their corporate Web sites, if any, in interactive data format using the eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL).2 Among other things, the Commission adopted Rule 405 of Regulation S–T, requiring filers to prepare Interactive Data Files that comply with EDGAR Filer Manual requirements.3 Section 6.3.9 of Volume II of the EDGAR Filer Manual requires use of a taxonomy specified on the Commission’s Web site. The Commission required foreign private issuers that prepare their financial statements in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB to begin their submissions in year three of a phase-in period.4 The Commission believed at that time that, by the phasein date, the EDGAR system would be able to support an IFRS taxonomy and an IFRS taxonomy would be sufficiently advanced to require its use.5 Because the Commission had not specified on its Web site an IFRS taxonomy, foreign private issuers that use IFRS as issued by the IASB have not submitted their financial statement information to the Commission in XBRL. In recognition of the fact that it was not possible for foreign private issuers that use IFRS as issued by the IASB to comply with the Interactive Data File requirements until the Commission specified on its Web site a taxonomy for such use, in 2011 the Commission staff stated that foreign private issuers that prepare their financial statements in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB were not required to submit to the Commission and post on their corporate Web sites, if any, Interactive Data Files until the Commission specified on its Web site a 1 See 17 CFR 240.3b–4(c).

Although existing Rule 405 would require foreign private issuers that prepare their financial statements in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB to submit financial data in XBRL upon publication of the taxonomy, the Commission is providing notice that such issuers may first submit financial data in XBRL with their first annual report on Form 20–F or 40–F for a fiscal period ending on or after December 15, 2017.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend Rule 103B, which governs the allocation of securities to Designated Market Makers. The proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site at www.nyse.com, at the principal office of the Exchange, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the self-regulatory organization included statements concerning the purpose of, and basis for, the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of those statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to amend Rule 103B, which governs the allocation of securities to DMMs, to streamline the allocation process and facilitate the selection of DMM units by issuers. Specifically, as described in more detail below, the Exchange proposes to: • Amend Rule 103B(III)(A), which provides for issuer selection of DMM units, to require issuers select all DMM units to interview, permit senior officials at issuers to designate a representative to attend DMM interviews, and eliminate the cap on the number of DMM representatives that can participate in issuer interviews; • amend Rule 103B(III)(B), which provides for selection of DMM units by the Exchange, to remove the requirement that the Exchange Selection Panel (‘‘ESP’’) base its review only on information available to an issuer and reduce the size of the ESP to three Exchange employees designated by the Chief Executive Officer; • renumber Rule 103B(III)(B)(2), which describes the DMM one year obligation, as new Rule 103B(III)(C) and make certain non-substantive changes to the existing rule text; PO 00000 Frm 00110 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 • renumber Rule 103B(III)(B)(3), which describes foreign listing considerations, as new Rule 103B(III)(D); • amend Rule 103B(VI)(D) (1) and (3), governing listed company mergers, to make certain non-substantive changes; • amend Rule 103B(VI)(F), governing allocation of closed-end management investment companies, to specify that the group of eligible DMM units an issuer listing additional funds can select from also includes DMM units the issuer ‘‘reviewed’’ during the initial allocation; • amend Rule 103B(VI)(G), governing the allocation freeze policy, to replace references to ‘‘specialty stock’’ with ‘‘DMM interest’’; and • amend Rule 103B(VI)(H), setting forth the allocation sunset policy, to provide that allocation decisions remain effective for initial public offerings (‘‘IPO’’) that list on the Exchange within eighteen months of such decision rather than the current twelve months and to specify that, in situations where the proposed individual DMM is no longer with the selected DMM unit, the company may choose to stay with the selected DMM or be referred to allocation and may interview a replacement individual DMM prior to making that decision. Current Rule 103B Rule 103B currently provides two options for the allocation of securities to DMMs: (1) The issuer selects the DMM unit; or (2) the issuer delegates selection of the DMM unit to the Exchange. If the issuer proceeds under the first option, the listing company selects a minimum of four DMM units to interview.4 A DMM unit’s eligibility to participate in the allocation process is based on objective criteria and determined at the time the interview is scheduled. No more than three representatives of each DMM unit may currently participate in the interview, each of whom must be employees of the DMM unit.5 Within five business days after the issuer selects the DMM units to be interviewed, the issuer meets with representatives of each of the DMM units. At least one representative of the listing company must be a senior official of the rank of Corporate Secretary or above of that company. Additionally, no more than three representatives of each DMM unit may participate in the meeting, each of whom must be an employee of the DMM unit, and one of whom must be the individual DMM 4 See 5 See E:\FR\FM\06MRN1.SGM Rule 103B(III)(A)(1).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Securities and Exchange Commission (``Commission'') is 
providing notice that the IFRS Taxonomy has been published on the 
Commission's Web site as provided for by the EDGAR Filer Manual. 
Accordingly, the IFRS Taxonomy is available for foreign private issuers 
to submit their financial statements in XBRL.

DATES: The IFRS Taxonomy was published on the Commission's Web site 
pursuant to Rule 405 of Regulation S-T on March 1, 2017.

ADDRESSES: The IFRS Taxonomy is available on the Commission's Web site 
at https://www.sec.gov/page/derataxonomies.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mark W. Green, Senior Special Counsel 
(Regulatory Policy), Division of Corporation Finance, at (202) 551-
3430; Robert Sledge or Kevin Vaughn, Office of the Chief Accountant, at 
(202) 551-5300; or Mike Willis, Assistant Director, Division of 
Economic and Risk Analysis, at (202) 551-6600, Securities and Exchange 
Commission, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549-7010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 30, 2009, the Commission adopted 
rules to require domestic public companies and foreign private issuers 
\1\ that prepare their financial statements in accordance with U.S. 
generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP), and foreign 
private issuers that prepare their financial statements using 
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the 
International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), to provide their 
financial statements to the Commission and on their corporate Web 
sites, if any, in interactive data format using the eXtensible Business 
Reporting Language (XBRL).\2\ Among other things, the Commission 
adopted Rule 405 of Regulation S-T, requiring filers to prepare 
Interactive Data Files that comply with EDGAR Filer Manual 
requirements.\3\ Section 6.3.9 of Volume II of the EDGAR Filer Manual 
requires use of a taxonomy specified on the Commission's Web site.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See 17 CFR 240.3b-4(c).
    \2\ See Interactive Data To Improve Financial Reporting, Release 
No. 33-9002 (Jan. 30, 2009), 74 FR 6776 (Feb. 10, 2009) (``XBRL 
Adopting Release'').
    \3\ 17 CFR 232.405.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission required foreign private issuers that prepare their 
financial statements in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB to 
begin their submissions in year three of a phase-in period.\4\ The 
Commission believed at that time that, by the phase-in date, the EDGAR 
system would be able to support an IFRS taxonomy and an IFRS taxonomy 
would be sufficiently advanced to require its use.\5\ Because the 
Commission had not specified on its Web site an IFRS taxonomy, foreign 
private issuers that use IFRS as issued by the IASB have not submitted 
their financial statement information to the Commission in XBRL. In 
recognition of the fact that it was not possible for foreign private 
issuers that use IFRS as issued by the IASB to comply with the 
Interactive Data File requirements until the Commission specified on 
its Web site a taxonomy for such use, in 2011 the Commission staff 
stated that foreign private issuers that prepare their financial 
statements in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB were not 
required to submit to the Commission and post on their corporate Web 
sites, if any, Interactive Data Files until the Commission specified on 
its Web site a

taxonomy for use by such foreign private issuers in preparing their 
Interactive Data Files.\6\

    \4\ See, e.g., 17 CFR 229.601(b)(101).
    \5\ See XBRL Adopting Release, 74 FR at 6785-86.
    \6\ See SEC No-Action Letter from the Division of Corporation 
Finance and the Office of the Chief Accountant to the Center for 
Audit Quality (Apr. 8, 2011), available at http://www.sec.gov/divisions/corpfin/cf-noaction/2011/caq040811.htm. With the issuance 
of this notice and the posting of the IFRS taxonomy on the 
Commission's Web site, the letter is now moot.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On March 1, 2017, the IFRS Taxonomy was specified on the 
Commission's Web site, as provided by the EDGAR Filer Manual.\7\ 
Accordingly, foreign private issuers that prepare their financial 
statements in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB and are 
subject to Rule 405 may immediately begin submitting their financial 
statements in interactive data format. Although existing Rule 405 would 
require foreign private issuers that prepare their financial statements 
in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB to submit financial data 
in XBRL upon publication of the taxonomy, the Commission is providing 
notice that such issuers may first submit financial data in XBRL with 
their first annual report on Form 20-F or 40-F for a fiscal period 
ending on or after December 15, 2017.
