BCB issued Circular No. 3.930 to broaden the scope and standardize the qualitative and quantitative information disclosed by financial institutions on calculation of capital, compliance with prudential limits, and management of risk. These disclosures will form part of the "Pillar 3 Report." For access to the information to be as simple and broad as possible, the disclosures should be published in a standardized open format to enable automated data capture, thus facilitating the use of information by investors, researchers, and other stakeholders. The circular takes effect from January 01, 2020.
The new rules are based on two BCBS-published documents—"Revised Pillar 3 disclosure requirements” (published in 2015) and “Pillar 3 disclosure requirements – consolidated and enhanced framework” (published in 2017). In addition to adding new disclosure requirements in relation to the current transparency obligations, the circular consolidates requirements that are currently dispersed in other regulations. The disclosure requirements established in the Pillar 3 Report are organized into tables with fixed format for quantitative information and tables with flexible format for qualitative information.
