IFRS 9 Financial Instruments was published in November 2009 and contained requirements for financial assets. Requirements for financial liabilities were added to IFRS 9 in October 2010. Most of the requirements for financial liabilities were carried forward unchanged from IAS 39. However, some changes were made to the fair value option for financial liabilities to address the issue of own credit risk.
In December 2011, the Board amended IFRS 9 to require application for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2015 and to not require the restatement of comparative-period financial statements upon initial application.
