BCBS published assessment reports on the implementation of the net stable funding ratio (NSFR) and the large exposures (LE) framework in Australia, Canada, and India. The assessments found that the NSFR and large exposures regulations in each of these jurisdictions are compliant with the global standards of the Basel Committee. This is the highest of the four possible assessment grades.
These publications form part of the Regulatory Consistency Assessment Program (RCAP), through which the Basel Committee monitors the timely adoption of regulations by its members, assesses the regulations' consistency with the Basel framework, and examines the consistency of banks' calculation of the prudential ratios across jurisdictions. The next assessment reports will be on Argentina and China and these reports are expected to be published in November 2019. The Basel Committee plans to complete its review of the implementation of the NSFR and the large exposures framework for all member jurisdictions by March 2021.
