Fair value measurement
This project is part of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the IASB and FASB.
The objective of this project is to provide guidance to entities on how they should measure the fair value of assets and liabilities when required by other Standards. This project will not change when fair value measurement is required by IFRSs.
Current status of the project
The IASB issued IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement on 12 May 2011.
The IASB and FASB are currently considering the development of educational material relating to fair value measurements.
