Following the IASB's September 2018 meeting, we have analysed the IASB work plan to see what changes have resulted from the meeting and other developments since the work plan was last revised in July. Six new projects were added to the work plan.

Below is an analysis of all changes made to the work plan since our last analysis on 20 July 2018.
