Accounting Standards: Commission endorses IAS 39 Fair Value Option


The European Commission has adopted a Regulation endorsing the amended International Accounting Standard (IAS) N° 39 on Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement, the “Fair Value Option”. This text was unanimously supported by Member States at the Accounting Regulatory Committee and by the European Parliament. Adoption is retroactive to 1st January 2005, so that companies will be able to apply the amended standard for their 2005 financial statements.

Internal Market and Services Commissioner Charlie McCreevy said: “I am very pleased that the Commission has been able to eliminate the ‘Fair Value carve-out’ to IAS 39. The two IAS 39 carve-outs were always intended to be exceptional and temporary. We therefore need to press on with the technical work to find a solution on the second carve out.”
