Solutions to Gripping IFRS: Graded Questions The framework Kolitz and Sowden-Service, 2009 Chapter 2: Page 2 Solution 2.2 The framework is not an International Financial Reporting Standard [paragraph 2 of framework]. Faithful representation forms part of the discussion of reliable information (qualitative characteristic) of useful information as addressed in the framework. IAS 1 p13 states that fair presentation requires faithful representation of transactions and elements as defined in the framework. As a result, IAS 1, p13, therefore requires a user to incorporate the principles set out in the framework (although it is not an IFRS) as well as the definitions of the elements, so as to achieve fair presentation.
