Post-implementation Review - IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement
June, 15th 2017
The IASB has issued a request for stakeholders to tell the Board about their experience with the accounting standard that explains how to measure the ‘fair value’ of assets and liabilities, IFRS 13. The aim is to check whether the Standard meets its objectives. This request is part of the IASB’s Post-implementation Review (PIR) of IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement. The objective of a PIR is to assess whether an accounting standard works as intended and achieves its objectives. This assessment involves analysing how the requirements in the standard affect investors, companies and auditors. The PIR also helps detect areas of a standard that may present challenges that could result in inconsistent application of the requirements.
The Request for information issued by IASB on Post-implementation Review - IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement, is for comments only. Comments on the aforesaid document need to be received by August 16, 2017.
