Members of the IASB have discussed with the DPOC the progress of the due process that is being conducted on major projects.
The DPOC has reviewed, when appropriate, the comments that have been received from interested parties on the due process that the IASB followed.
This issue was discussed on the basis of publicly available agenda papers at the IFRS Interpretations Committee (the Interpretations Committee) meetings in September, November 2012 and January 2013.
The results of the discussions of the Interpretations Committee was also summarised in the IFRIC Update for the meetings.
Afterwards, the IASB discussed the issue at its February 2013 meeting and decided to add this issue to its agenda and to propose a narrow-scope amendment to IAS 19.
The IASB published the proposals for amendments to IAS 19 Defined Benefit Plans: Employee Contributions on 25 March 2013.
The project webpage for the proposed amendments is live and can be accessed here.
