The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) has published Version 4.4.S0 of the Basel III monitoring workbook, along with the instructions and frequently asked questions (FAQs) on Basel III monitoring. The updates are in reference to the collection of December 2021 data. While the structure of the workbooks used for this data collection exercise is the same in all participating countries, BCBS notes that banks should use the workbook obtained from their respective national supervisory agency to submit their returns. This is because the workbooks from national supervisory agencies are adjusted to reflect the particularities of the regulatory frameworks in participating countries.
BCBS monitors the impact of Basel III global regulatory framework for more resilient banks and banking systems, Basel III leverage ratio framework and disclosure requirements, Basel III liquidity coverage ratio and liquidity risk monitoring tools, Basel III net stable funding ratio, and the final Basel III post-crisis reforms on a sample of banks. The exercise is repeated semi-annually, with end-December and end-June reporting dates. Additionally, worksheets have been added to collect data on the ongoing policy initiatives of BCBS.
