The Intangibles Disclosure Framework (IDF) outlines principles for businesses to disclose and communicate their IA such as brand value, patents or registered designs in a systematic and comprehensive way.

An initiative of the Singapore IP Strategy 2030, the IDF supports the disclosure of consistent information about a company’s IA, so that stakeholders can make more informed assessments of an enterprise’s business and financial prospects.  

The disclosure principles in the IDF are anchored in four pillars: Strategy, Identification, Measurement, and Management (SIMM).
