08 Jan 2020

The European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) has published an updated endorsement status report to provide additional guidance on when endorsement of the two amendments to IFRSs that became effective on 1 January 2020 but have not been endorsed for use in the European Union yet might be expected.

The amendments are Definition of a Business (Amendments to IFRS 3) and Interest Rate Benchmark Reform (Amendments to IFRS 9, IAS 39 and IFRS 7).

On the IFRS 3 amendments EFRAG notes: "The required scrutiny period by the European Parliament will only conclude mid-March 2020. The finalisation of the process will then proceed as usual."

On the IBOR amendments, the report states: "Almost all formalities for endorsement have been completed. Without pre-empting the final adoption procedures, the amendments could be adopted by mid-January followed by publication in the Official Journal."
