    PRA Removes References to LIBOR in SoP on Pillar 2 Capital and SS20/15

    February 24, 2020

    PRA published a policy statement (PS3/20) that provides updates to certain supervisory statements (SS20/15, SS28/15, and SS35/15) and statements of policy (SoP). The proposals on these updates were covered in Chapters 2 and 3 of an occasional consultation paper CP25/19. The proposals in chapter 2 were to update SS20/15 on supervising building societies’ treasury and lending activities (Appendix 1) and Statement of Policy on the methodologies for setting Pillar 2 capital (Appendix 2) to remove references to the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR). In chapter 3, PRA proposed to update certain redundant references and make minor corrections to SS28/15 on strengthening individual accountability in banking (Appendix 3) and to SS35/15 on strengthening individual accountability in insurance (Appendix 4). PRA received no responses to these chapters of CP25/19 and has, therefore, made no changes to the draft policy.

    PS3/20 will take effect from its date of publication. The policy set out in PS3/20 has been designed in context of the Brexit and the entry of UK into the transition period, during which time the UK remains subject to European law. PRA will keep the policy under review to assess whether any changes would be required due to changes in the UK regulatory framework at the end of the transition period, including those arising once any new arrangements with the EU take effect. PRA has assessed that the proposals would not need to be amended under the EU (Withdrawal) Act 2018 at the end of the transition period. 

    PRA plans to publish feedback and final policy for chapter 5 of the CP25/19, alongside the final policy for CP21/19 on probability of default and loss given default estimation under credit risk at a later date, as both consultations proposed changes to SS11/13 on the internal ratings-based approaches.
