  Glossary of Terms - - - -

The numbering of the FRSs corresponds to the IFRSs issued by the IASB. For example, FRS 1 in Malaysia is equivalent to IFRS 1. FRS with a 100 prefix corresponds to its equivalent IASs. Thus FRS 101 is equivalent to IAS 1. FRS with a 200 prefix denotes locally developed Standard with no equivalent International Standard.

 

Hence, FRS 1 = IFRS 1
FRS 101 = IAS 1
FRS 201 = locally developed standard
