The IFRS Interpretation Committee (IFRS IC) published an Addendum to the IFRIC Update September 2022 on 24 October 2022. It contains the following agenda decisions - which were previously pending submission to the IASB and are now final:
Final agenda decisions

The IASB discussed the agenda decisions at its meeting in October 2022 and raised no objections. We reported on the preliminary agenda decisions from September 2022 in Express Accounting News 35/2022. The IASB is expected to implement the agenda decisions in the near future.
