The following standards were amended: IFRS 5 Non-current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations, IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures, IAS 19 Employee Benefits, IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting and IFRS 1 First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards. Each company shall apply the amendments at the latest, as from the commencement date of its first financial year starting on or after 1 January 2016.
