Proposes to replace the AASB Approach to IPSASs (issued October 2011) which sets out the conditions necessary for the AASB to adopt International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) for not-for-profit public sector entities in Australia, rather than using IFRS with Australian-specific amendments for such entities.
