The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has issued this Exposure Draft Insurance Contracts to propose significant improvements to the accounting for insurance contracts. When the IASB was established in 2001 there were no international financial reporting requirements for insurance contracts. In 2004 the IASB introduced IFRS 4 Insurance Contracts as an interim standard that permitted many existing international accounting practices to be retained, whilst beginning a more comprehensive review of insurance accounting as a second phase of the project. The proposals contained in this Exposure Draft are the result of that review.
