AASB to host Roundtable Discussions on IASB Proposals Relating to Insurance Contracts

You are invited to participate in an AASB Roundtable to discuss the IASB’s Exposure Draft ED/2013/7 Insurance Contracts (IASB ED).  The model proposed in ED/2013/7 includes some significant differences from the model proposed in the IASB’s ED/2010/8 Insurance Contracts issued in August 2010 (and incorporated in AASB ED 201 of the same name). AASB Exposure Draft ED 244 Insurance Contracts includes the revised IASB ED.

The purpose of the Roundtables is to provide a forum for constituents and Board members to discuss the proposals included in the IASB’s ED. It is also expected that the Roundtables will assist the AASB and its constituents in formulating their submissions to the IASB.

The IASB will participate in the Sydney Roundtable via videoconference.   Details of other IASB outreach activities on Insurance Contracts in the region can be found here.

An agenda and discussion points for the Roundtables will be based on the questions in the IASB ED. The IASB ED and supporting documents can be found on the IASB’s Insurance Contracts project page.
