    IFSB Consults on Guidance Note for Shariah-Compliant LOLR Facilities

    May 07, 2019

    IFSB issued the exposure draft of Guidance Note-7 (ED GN-7) on Sharī`ah-compliant lender-of-last-resort (SLOLR) facilities. This exposure draft complements the existing IFSB guidance on SLOLR and offers international benchmark guidelines to regulatory and supervisory authorities for developing and offering SLOLR facilities as part of the financial safety net arrangement for institutions offering Islamic financial services (IIFS) in their jurisdictions. Comments are requested by July 05, 2019.

    ED GN-7 is primarily intended to serve as a benchmark for central banks in establishing and operationalizing an SLOLR framework that applies to full-fledged Islamic commercial banks and Islamic commercial banks that are subsidiaries of conventional banks. The exposure draft covers several essential features of an SLOLR arrangement, including the following:

    • Preconditions for developing and implementing an SLOLR mechanism
    • Eligibility criteria to access SLOLR
    • Non-exhaustive selection of Sharī`ah-compliant structures and mechanisms that central banks could utilize for SLOLR purposes
    • Applicability of penalty rates to these mechanisms
    • Sharī`ah-compliant eligible collateral
    • Relevant disclosures to be made by central banks to IIFS in their jurisdictions

    Central banks are expected to start implementation of this guidance note from January 01, 2021, taking into account the time needed to prepare the necessary market infrastructure; to run appropriate assessments on eligible collateral, haircuts, and Sharī`ah-compliant structures; and to make the necessary disclosures to IIFS in their jurisdictions.
