These regulations are intended to be released as a supporting guideline for the Guiding Opinions. The Capital Management Rules set the same transition period as the Guidance Opinion. After the end of the transition period, for non-standardized debt assets that are difficult to standardize for special reasons and non-standardized equity assets that are not matured, the Securities and Futures Commission, or SFC, agrees to take appropriate arrangements to properly handle them. Some of the regulatory indicators are slightly relaxed compared with the current regulations.
