The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has initiated the public consultation phase of IFRS 8 'Operating Segments' post-implementation review (PIR) process. As part of the public consultation phase, the IASB has published for comment a Request for Information (RFI) on the effect of implementing the standard.

The purpose of the review is to gather "feedback on whether the standard is functioning as intended, as well as more practical information on the challenges and costs associated with implementing the standard." In addition to the RFI, the IASB will be holding outreach activities internationally to gather more feedback on the effect of implementing IFRS 8.

The IFRS 8 standard marks the first instance the IASB has conducted a PIR of a major standard since PIR was introduced by the Trustees in 2007.

Comments on the RFI are due by 16 November 2012.

A live web presentation on the RFI will be available on 26 July 2012 by the IASB staff. Presentation details are available on the IASB website.
