    CBIRC Consults on Regulatory Assessment of Bank Services for MSEs

    April 09, 2020

    CBIRC is consulting on draft provisional rules for regulatory assessment of commercial banks’ financial services for micro and small enterprises. CBIRC has drafted these rules to further alleviate the financing difficulties for micro and small enterprises (MSEs). The rules will guide and encourage commercial banks to thoroughly implement the decisions and work arrangements of the central government on financial support for MSEs and to continuously improve the quality and efficiency of MSE financial services. The deadline of the feedback is May 09, 2020. CBIRC has also issued questions and answers (Q&As) related to these draft rules.

    The key points covered in the draft rules include the following:

    • Clarifying assessment scope and setting standardized indicators. The rules note that comprehensive assessment shall be made on commercial banks over credit provision, establishment of relevant system and mechanism, implementation of key regulatory policies, innovation of products and services, and supervision and inspection related to MSE financial services, with specific indicators and assessment standards.
    • Specifying the assessment mechanism and standardizing the approach and process. CBIRC headquarters and local offices will establish a regulatory assessment mechanism that mainly targets banking institutions with legal person status and conduct annual assessment. The assessment process will include banks’ self-assessment, regulatory information collection, preliminary regulatory assessment, regulatory review, assessment result reporting, filing, and other related work. 
    • Strengthening the application of assessment results and providing incentives and guidance. The rules specify how the assessment results will be applied and emphasize coordination with relevant policies and measures. The aim is for the regulatory assessment results to provide better incentives for commercial banks to improve MSE financial services.
