Posted 12:00 PM by
The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) became aware that the definition of collections in the Master Glossary of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification® (ASC) did not agree with the definition used in the American Alliance of Museums’ Code of Ethics for Museums (the Code). The Code had been revised after the issuance of a prior FASB statement, which served as the basis for the definition of collections in the ASC. Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2019-03, Not-for-Profit Entities (Topic 958): Updating the Definition of Collections, was issued to realign the definition used in the Master Glossary of the ASC with the definition used in the Code.
