About the project

The IASB was informed of concerns that the basis on which entities applied the aggregation criteria in IFRS 8 Operating Segments to operating segments were not clear.

The amendments include a disclosure in IFRS 8 requiring a description of both the operating segments that have been aggregated and the economic indicators that have been assessed in order to conclude that the operating segments have “similar economic characteristics” in accordance with paragraph 12 of IFRS 8.
