The IASB will hold an additional Board meeting on 2 October 2008 to discuss potential amendments to Amendments to IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures and a revised version of the staff draft of the forthcoming exposure draft of a proposed IFRS on Consolidation.

The IASB has accelerated its work on these two issues in response to the recommendations of the Financial Stability Forum. The extra meeting will enable the staff to make faster progress on those projects.

2 October 2008, London

Because the meeting has been arranged at short notice, some Board members will be taking part via video conferencing facilities. To make allowance for the different time zones involved the meeting will be held in two sessions, one in the morning and the same topics of discussion repeated in the afternoon. The morning session will take place between 09:00am and 12:00 noon (London time, GMT +1), and the afternoon session between 15:00pm and 18:00pm (London time, GMT +1). Both sessions will be open to public observation and will be webcast.
