IAS 27, Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements (as amended in 2008) and SIC 12 Consolidation — Special Purpose Entities have been superseded by IFRS 10. Accordingly, IAS 27 (as amended in 2008) and SIC 12 have been withdrawn.

IFRS 10 and IFRS 12 are effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013.  Earlier application of IFRS 10 and IFRS 12 is permitted if IFRS 11, IAS 27 (as amended in 2011) and IAS 28 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures (as amended in 2011) are applied at the same time. An entity is encouraged to provide information required by IFRS 12 earlier than annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013.
