Despite the uncertainty over whether the US will eventually adopt IFRS, the IASB is continuing to make progress on its current major projects.
Deliberations are ongoing and the IASB is planning to publish exposure drafts on leases, impairment of financial assets (phase 2 of the Financial Instruments project) and limited amendments to the rules on classification and measurement (phase 1 of the Financial Instruments project) by the end of the year.
The new standard on revenue recognition is set for publication at the start of 2013 and the standard on hedge accounting is expected at the end of 2012.
Finally, the IASB has launched its first post-implementation review of a standard, namely IFRS 8 – Operating segments.
