IAS 37 — Obligations to repair/maintain another entity’s property, plant and equipment

Date recorded:


The IFRIC considered a suggestion made during its project on service concessions that it should take onto its agenda a separate project to interpret the requirements of IAS 37 Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets in respect of obligations to repair or maintain another entity’s property, plant and equipment that the reporting entity uses.


Decision not to add

August 2005



The IFRIC decided not to add this topic to its agenda because, in practice, entities are recognising a provision for repairs as damage or usage occurs that the entity is obliged to make good. The IFRIC was not aware of evidence that significantly divergent interpretations were being reached in practice.


IFRIC reference: IAS 37-1
