The Financial Services Authority of Indonesia (OJK) published an assessment of the impact of closure of Silicon Valley Bank on the banking industry, along with a regulation on products and activities of Sharia banks and Sharia business units. The regulation on products and activities of Sharia banks and Sharia business units ensures that banks should apply Sharia Principles, prudential principles, and customer protection principles while issuing new products and activities. The regulation, which sets out provisions on general requirements, risk management, product explanations, licensing, reporting, and discontinuation of new products and activities, shall come into force on the date of promulgation. Additionally, OJK is seeking comments, until April 17, 2023, on the maximum legal lending limits for rural banks (or BPRs) and the maximum limits for distribution of funds for Sharia rural banks (or BPRS).
