European Union formally adopts IBOR amendments

16 Jan 2020

The European Union has published a Commission Regulation endorsing 'Interest Rate Benchmark Reform (Amendments to IFRS 9, IAS 39 and IFRS 7)'.

The amendments are a first reaction to the potential effects the IBOR reform could have on financial reporting and deal with pre-replacement issues (issues affecting financial reporting in the period before the replacement of an existing interest rate benchmark); the IASB has already begun work on a second phase of the project that deals with replacement issues (issues that might affect financial reporting when an existing interest rate benchmark is replaced).

The European Union effective date is the same as the IASB effective date (1 January 2020).

The Commission Regulation amending Regulation (EC) No 1126/2008 adopting certain international accounting standards in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1606/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 16 January 2020.
