The Financial Services Authority of Indonesia (OJK) is strengthening cooperation with the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) and the Japanese Financial Services Agency (JFSA) to enhance the regulatory and supervisory capacity and develop the financial services sector. Additionally, OJK issued regulations on the "assessment of the soundness of rural banks and Sharia rural banks" (POJK Number 3/POJK.03/2022) and on the "Credit Information Management Institutions" (POJK Number 5/POJK.03/2022). Both the regulations came into effect in March 2022.
Regulation on assessment of soundness of rural banks and Sharia rural banks has been issued to encourage increased risk management and governance implementation for the rural banking and Sharia rural banking sector. The assessment of the level of health is carried out by rural banks and Sharia rural banks at least on a semi-annual basis and will take effect from the December 2022 report for the trial phase and the imposition of sanctions will become effective as of the December 2023 report.
