The IASB's regular monthly meeting was held on 27 February–2 March 2012 in London, part of it a joint meeting with the FASB.

The IASB only sessions saw a continuation of discussions on insurance contracts and macro hedge accounting, consideration of a number of matters related to the IFRS Interpretations Committee (including the status and due process for agenda decisions) and various annual improvements matters.
