DNB published the banking and insurance newsletters for March 2020. The newsletters focus on the impact of COVID-19 on banking and insurance industry. The banking newsletter highlights the DNB discussion with less significant banks about the regulator's expectations at this time. DNB will publish a letter on its expectations from banks in the context of recent developments. The insurance newsletter highlights that a different approach is required in the wake of COVID-19 than the standard continuity processes. DNB expects institutions to recognize this risk, analyze its impact, and implement additional measures, where necessary. DNB also updated the calendar of requests from banks.
The banking newsletter highlights that the Ministry of Finance published a draft bill for amendments to the Financial Supervision Act to implement new European regulations in the field of capital requirements for banks and investment firms on February 12, 2020. The bill is open for consultation until March 11, 2020. DNB also published the results of its investigation, in 2019, into climate-related risks and mitigating actions by medium-size and small banks. DNB will also send the annual Integrity Risk Reporting (IRAP) to the financial sector on March 31, 2020. IRAP is an important source for DNB to arrive at a risk profile of each institution and for its analysis of risk management in the sector. The upcoming IRAP questionnaire concerns the organization, customers, activities and products of institutions in the calendar year 2019 and as at December 31, 2019. In preparation, DNB paid attention to cross-sectoral harmonization of the questionnaire.
