the FASB’s joint project with the International Accounting Standards Board
(IASB®) to substantially converge U.S. GAAP and IFRS®
Standards. The FASB has made certain amendments since the culmination of its joint
project with the IASB, including those in (1) ASU 2016-01, which amends the guidance in
U.S. GAAP on the classification and measurement of financial instruments and certain
disclosure requirements associated with the fair value of financial instruments, and (2)
ASU 2018-13, which changes the fair value disclosure requirements for all entities. The
guidance in this Roadmap is written as if adoption of ASU 2016-01 has occurred. Chapter
11 discusses fair value disclosures required before and after ASU 2018-13.
The guidance on application of the fair value option originated in FASB Statement 159.
The FASB has not made any significant amendments to this guidance since the issuance of
the original pronouncement.
