BCBS published a report summarizing the follow-up actions taken or planned by member jurisdictions as of the end of 2018; these actions are intended to address deviations from the Basel standards identified as part of the Regulatory Consistency Assessment Program (RCAP). The follow-up actions pertain to the assessments of risk-based capital and liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) regulations that were completed and published as of the end of 2017.
Also published were the follow-up assessments on each jurisdiction, alongside the original RCAP reports. These follow-up assessments are based on self-reporting and were prepared by the authorities in each jurisdiction that was assessed. The actions taken or planned have not been reviewed or evaluated by the Basel Committee. The follow-up reports for the assessments completed and published as of the end of 2018 will be published in 2020. This will cover, for the first time, assessments of BCBS members' regulations to implement global standards for the net stable funding ratio (NSFR) and the framework for measuring and controlling large exposures.
