A comprehensive project summary, prepared by the IASB staff, has been posted to the fair value measurement project page of the IASB's site.

The project summary (PDF 951k) provides the background to the IASB's fair value measurement project and explains how the IASB plans to finalise an IFRS on fair value measurement. The summary also includes a comparison of the tentative decisions reached so far in the project with the proposals in the IASB's May 2009 exposure draft Fair Value Measurement and the proposals in the US Financial Accounting Standards Board's (FASB) exposure draft of a proposed Accounting Standards Update (ASU) Amendments for Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs (link to FASB website).
