Basel Committee Finalizes Technical Amendment to Pillar 3 Disclosure Requirements
08/30/2018Following a consultation in March 2018, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has published a finalized technical amendment to the consolidated Pillar 3 disclosure technical standard that was issued in March 2017. The amendment imposes additional Pillar 3 disclosure requirements for those jurisdictions implementing an Expected Credit Loss, or ECL, accounting model as well as for those adopting transitional arrangements for the regulatory treatment of accounting provisions. These additional disclosures require banks to disclose, where applicable: (i) the ;fully loaded; impact of ECL transitional arrangements used in Total Loss Absorbing Capacity resources and ratios; (ii) the allocation between general and specific provisions for standardized approach exposures; and (iii) the rationale for their categorization of ECL accounting provisions in general and specific categories for standardized approach exposures.
The technical amendment will also apply to jurisdictions adopting transitional arrangements for the regulatory treatment of accounting provisions. The interim approach to, and transitional arrangements for, the regulatory treatment of accounting provisions were published separately by the Basel Committee in March 2017.
The amendments covered by the revised Technical Standard will take effect from January 1, 2019.
