BCBS published its first proposed technical amendment, which is related to the treatment of extraordinary monetary policy operations in the net stable funding ratio (NSFR). To provide greater flexibility in the treatment of extraordinary central bank liquidity-absorbing monetary policy operations, the technical amendment proposes to allow reduced required stable funding factors for central bank claims with maturity of more than six months. The comment period ends on February 05, 2018.
At the meeting in December 2017, BCBS established a procedure for issuing technical amendments to its standards. Technical amendments are defined as changes to standards that are not substantial in nature but that cannot be unambiguously resolved based on the current text. The expectation is that technical amendments will be published for public comment for 45 calendar days.
