[1] Pending MASB Exposure Drafts

ED Reference ED Title Issue Date Comment Deadline
There is no pending MASB ED

[2] Pending IASB Exposure Drafts, Draft IFRIC Interpretations and other draft pronouncements

The MASB has revised its due process (click here for the due process) in view that the Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards (MFRSs) are fully converged with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) since 1 January 2012. The revised due process allows for timely adoption and application of the MFRSs in Malaysia. This is important because the financial statements that have been prepared in accordance with MFRSs shall also make an explicit and unreserved statement of compliance with IFRSs. Therefore, the MASB issues IASB draft pronouncements simultaneously during the IASB’s exposure period as the Board will not issue them based upon IASB finalised pronouncements.

The following pending Draft Pronouncements refer to draft pronouncements issued by the MASB simultaneously during the IASB’s exposure period.
