The need to establish international accounting standards with regards to financial instruments is due to their spectacular evolution on global financial markets, which took place over the last couple of decades. Thus, the accounting practices used for financial instruments have been revolutionized themselves, and the standards established with regards to such practices attempt to keep the pace with the latest evolutions of the global financial markets. The main aim of this paper is to identify aspects that are specific to the accounting treatment of financial instruments, starting from the provisions of international accounting norms, considering the field of financial instruments as one of the most controversial areas of financial reporting.
