In December 2002, the IASB announced that it will hold public roundtable discussions during the week of 10 March 2003 on various aspects of its proposals to amend IAS 32 and IAS 39 on financial instruments.

The Board decided to host the discussions following its review of more than 150 comment letters received in response to the proposed amendments. The Board noted that the comments on the proposals "represented a wide range of opinion and raised numerous questions". Over 100 organisations and individuals have signed up to speak at the roundtables. The IASB has released an Information Package (PDF 74k) setting out 42 questions that it would like participants in the roundtables to address.
