    JFSA Published Final and Proposed Rules Under Basel Framework

    March 31, 2021

    JFSA proposed a rule on operational risk capital requirements and finalized rules on liquidity and leverage ratio requirements under the Basel framework. Furthermore, as part of its response to the cessation of LIBOR, JFSA published questions and answers (Q&A) on applying transitional measures with respect to the OTC derivative transactions involving the legacy interest rate benchmarks that are being replaced with the alternative benchmark rates. Finally, JFSA also updated the list of key performance indicators, which it had set forth in September 2019 to reflect the efficiency of financial intermediation by financial institutions (including major banks and regional banks).

    Getting back to the Basel III updates, JFSA proposed amendments to the regulatory notices on operational risk capital requirements, in line with the final Basel III framework. The proposal on Pillar 1 is aimed at abolishing the advanced measurement approach, the basic indicator approach, and the standardized approach, thus setting forth a new standardized measurement approach that measures the operational risk capital by "multiplying the Business Indicator Component (BIC) by the Internal Loss Multiplier." Additionally, the proposal on Pillar 3 sets forth certain new disclosure items. The comment period on this proposal is open till April 30, 2021. 

    Another Basel update involves the publication of the final amendments to the regulatory notices and guidelines related to liquidity ratio requirements (Pillar 1 and Pillar 3) for internationally active banks, along with the Q&A on liquidity ratio requirements. The amendments are with respect to the net stable funding ratio (NSFR) requirements from BCBS. JFSA had consulted on these amendments from December 2020 to January 2021 and has now published a summary of the comments received on the consultation. These amendments will take effect from September 30, 2021.

    JFSA also finalized amendments to the regulatory notice related to leverage ratio requirements; these amendments extend the measures to exclude central bank reserves from the calculation of leverage ratio until the end of March 2022, due to the continuous uncertainty regarding the impact of COVID-19 pandemic. The amendments came into effect on March 31, 2021. JFSA had consulted on these amendments from February to March 2021 and received no comments on the consultation.
