The rules on ECL

- require commercial banks to establish a complete management system for the ECL approach, set up a management team for implementing the ECL approach, develop relevant information systems, and strengthen the accumulation of historical data and information collection and maintenance for credit risks.
- stipulate commercial banks to improve the level of standardization and prudence in relevant procedures of the implementation process, such as credit risk exposure risk grouping, division of stages, model building, forward-looking adjustment, management adjustment, parameter management, and model verification.
- require all levels of regulatory agencies to supervise the management of the ECL approach by commercial banks through off-site supervision, on-site examination and other means; take corresponding regulatory measures to address the problems identified; and impose administrative penalties in accordance with the law.
The draft rules on regulatory statistics
- consist of provisions related to the authorities in charge of regulatory statistics, management on regulatory statistical investigation, management on regulatory statistical activities of banking and insurance institutions, and supervision on regulatory statistics.
- stipulate the requirements for unified management of regulatory statistics, define the responsibilities of the CBIRC department in charge of regulatory statistics, clarify the responsibilities of relevant departments of banking and insurance institutions, and set the boundaries of responsibilities for relevant parties.
