The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has amended IFRS 1 'First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards' to exempt first-time adopters of IFRSs from providing the additional disclosures introduced in March 2009 by 'Improving Disclosures about Financial Instruments (Amendments to IFRS 7)'.

The amendment gives first-time adopters the same transition provisions that Amendments to IFRS 7 provides to current IFRS preparers. The amendment is effective on 1 July 2010, with earlier application permitted. Click for IASB press release.
