CBB proposed amendments to the capital adequacy module (Module CA)—specifically part 3, chapters CA-8 to CA-10, for conventional banks (Volume 1) and Islamic banks (Volume 2). The amendments capture the revised standards for minimum capital requirements for market risk published by BCBS in January 2016. The key amendments that were proposed to the module encompass the revised boundary between the trading and banking books, the revised standardized approach, and the revised internal models approach. CBB requests all locally incorporated bank licensees and audit firms to provide their comments by April 04, 2018.
