Following the IASB's September 2017 meeting, we have analysed the IASB work plan to see what changes have resulted from the meeting and other developments in the months of August and September. Changes mostly relate to pronouncements having been published, comment letter deadlines having ended, and clarifications of upcoming dates of issuing prononouncements.

Below is an analysis of all changes made to the work plan since our last analysis on 21 Juli 2017.
