The staff presented a summary of the feedback received in response to the discussion paper Extractive Activities. The discussion paper was the result of a research project that was conducted for the IASB by a project team of national standard-setters from Australia, Canada, Norway and South Africa. The IASB also received an analysis of possible alternatives for defining the scope of a potential future project on extractive activities, based on feedback received in response to the discussion paper.
The Board did not make any decisions at this meeting. Furthermore, because the extractive activities research project is now complete, any subsequent decisions on extractive activities will be made only within the context of developing a possible future agenda proposal.
