The Korea Accounting Standards Board (KASB, Chair: Eui-Hyung Kim) hosted the 2021 Three Countries Accounting Standards Setters Meeting - China, Japan, and Korea via video conference on 13 October 2021.

Representatives from the three countries' standard setting bodies gathered to share the current status of IFRS implementation in each country and discussed major accounting issues. 

Dr. Andreas Barckow, Chair of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), Dr. Jianqiao Lu, Ms. Rika Suzuki, and Prof. Ann Tarca, Board members of the IASB, and representatives from Hong Kong and Macau standard setters also attended the meeting as observers. 

The three countries presented and shared experiences and views on the following accounting topics:

- Korea: Independent Supplementary Temporary Standards 
(e.g., Covid-19-related amendments to IFRS 16)
- China: Business Combinations under Common Control
- Japan: Intangible assets, with a focus on crypto-assets

At the meeting, Korea proposed the use of Independent Supplementary Temporary Standards as an alternative mechanism to enable better understanding of IFRS and efficiently manage temporary amendments to certain standards that are made to respond to impermanent events such as COVID-19 and interest rate benchmark reform. The topic received positive feedback from the attendees.
