The Order is in reference to the standardized approach for credit risk. The Order stipulates, among others, that mortgage loans for idle land in industrial zones shall be subject to 200% of the risk-weight and, in a commercial area too, the risk-weight of 200% shall apply. The Order also stipulates certain requirements for provisioning of problem loans.
    • announced to amend the "description and forms for the calculation method of bank's own capital and risk assets" under Part VII of calculation table of bank's own capital and risky assets. The amendment came into effect on February 18, 2022.
