The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) is consulting on a technical amendment to the Basel Framework to reflect a new process reviewing the global systemically important bank (G-SIB) assessment methodology. BCBS annually assesses the systemic importance of global banks using an indicator-based methodology. It is now planning to replace the existing three-year review cycle of the assessment methodology with a process of ongoing monitoring and review. Comment period for this consultation ends on September 03, 2021.
The proposed process will include monitoring the:
- Recent developments in techniques or new indicators that can be used for the assessment of systemic risk
- Emerging evidence on the effectiveness of the G-SIB regime
- Structural changes that could impact the effectiveness of the regime
As part of this monitoring, BCBS will consider the roles of branches and subsidiaries and alternative methodologies for the substitutability category that would allow the cap to be removed. Only if this monitoring work reveals evidence of material unintended consequences or material deficiencies with respect to the objectives of the framework will the Basel Committee consider changes to the regime.
