When the IASB meets with the Standards Advisory Council on 24-25 February 2003, virtually the entire agenda will be a roundtable discussion of financial instruments -- particularly the IASB's proposed amendments to IAS 32 and IAS 39. On the first day, discussion will centre on derecognition, derivatives and hedge accounting, and impairment of financial assets.

The second day's discussion will focus on the distinction between debt and equity. Click for Agenda Details. The IASB will also hold public roundtable discussions of IAS 32 and IAS 39 in Brussels (10-11 March) and in London (12-14 March).
