The IASB has issued IFRS 13 'Fair Value Measurement' which replaces the guidance on fair value measurement in existing IFRS accounting literature with a single standard.

The IFRS is the result of joint efforts by the IASB and FASB to develop a converged fair value framework; the FASB has also issued conforming amendments to their own fair value guidance in ASC 820.

IFRS 13 defines fair value, provides guidance on how to determine fair value and requires disclosures about fair value measurements. However, IFRS 13 does not change the requirements regarding which items should be measured or disclosed at fair value.

IFRS 13 is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013 with early application permitted.
