CMF proposed a regulation on the disclosure requirements for banks under Pillar 3 of the Basel III framework. The proposed regulation establishes, among other aspects, the type and criteria of information to be disclosed, adoption of principles of disclosure of Basel III, the forms and tables to be used (presented in Annex), and periodicity of the information for each of the established requirements. CMF also published a regulatory report that evaluates the impact of the proposal, along with the draft Chapter 21-20 of the Updated Compilation of Rules for Banks (RAN), the frequently asked questions (FAQ) about the consultation, and a presentation on the regulatory proposal. The consultation will close on November 05, 2020 and the regulation will be published no later than December 01, 2020. As explained in the FAQ document, the regulation will become effective in December 2022, in accordance with the provisions of CMF.
In accordance with the standards and the provisions of the General Banking Act, the new Chapter 21-20 of the Updated Compilation of Rules for Banks (RAN) sets out the principles and type of information to be disclosed as well as the periodicity of publication of the Pillar 3 document. Chapter 21-20 of RAN establishes that banking institutions must publish the Pillar 3 reports quarterly. Banks must publish the Pillar 3 document, for the first time, in April 2023, with information corresponding to the January-March quarter of the same year. Subsequent publications will be made with quarterly information and in the same frequency, being published on the dates defined in the standard under consultation. CMF, through the regulations in this consultation, will require the publication of a Pillar 3 document, offering users a single publication with all available information related to the risk profile and capital structure, published on an easily accessible website. This disclosure will complement the public information currently available, thus reducing information asymmetries and encouraging standardization of the frequency of dissemination and better comparability between national and international banking institutions. This will allow the market and information users to know risk profiles of local banking institutions, including their position and capital structure—at local consolidated and global consolidated levels—in a single format.
The Pillar 3 standard provides a comprehensive package of all disclosure requirements that have been proposed by BCBS and are applicable in the local market, beyond the regulatory capital requirements, such as disclosures related to liquidity and remuneration. Banking entities must publish their Pillar 3 document independently or along with their financial statements, reporting each of the tables and forms established in the regulation under consultation. The requirements established in the said regulation will apply to all banks incorporated in Chile and branches of foreign banks operating in the local market. These entities must provide information at both the local and global consolidated levels.
