CBB updated the Prudential Information Report (PIR) for conventional banks. The PIR is a report of the bank’s regulatory balance sheet and risk positions relative to regulatory limits. Banks should, therefore, include all assets and liabilities and off-balance sheet items of their head office and their branches in Bahrain and abroad. All Bahraini conventional banks must complete Form PIR in accordance with the requirements of Module BMA Reporting Requirements of the CBB Rulebook Volume 1.
The Form PIR is to be used for reporting on both a solo and a consolidated basis, where indicated. The key purpose of this form is to assess banks’ financial condition, including their capital adequacy (credit, market, and operational risks), asset quality, and liquidity. A completed PIR is required from all Bahraini conventional bank licensees, showing the financial position and the capital adequacy ratio at the end of each calendar quarter. Form PIR should be filed electronically not later than 20 days after the relevant reporting date.
