IFRS Interpretations Committee

Amendments to IFRS 1


Milestones of the current project


About the project

IFRS 1 First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards sets the requirements for entities that apply IFRSs for the first time.

Any standard or amendment that the IASB issues is assessed in light of the impact this standard has on first time adopters. The IASB assesses whether special requirements need to be incorporated into IFRS 1 to ensure that first time adopters have appropriate guidance. As a result, amendments to IFRS 1 are likely to happen from time to time.
