Fair Value Meausrement and IAS 39

Date recorded:

The staff raised an issue that emerged during the deliberations on fair value measurement. Under IAS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement, the amount initially recognised for items that are not remeasured at fair value is not fair value as it would be defined in the fair value measurement project. The staff proposed words that could address this issue. The Board agreed to the staff approach, but asked the staff to develop words with a positive and not a negative notion.
