BOT has revised rules on the standardized approach for calculating credit risk weighted assets for commercial banks, since the status of some assets has changed from the previous requirements of BOT. Additionally, BOT has revised rules on the liquidity coverage ratio (LCR), as LCR guidelines contain material references to the types of counterparties in accordance with the rules on calculation of credit risk-weighted assets for commercial banks under the standardized approach. The revisions have been effective from March 24, 2020.
