    May 29, 2020

    OJK published a policy package that sets out relaxations to certain regulatory capital and liquidity risk framework provisions in the banking sector to help maintain financial sector stability amid COVID-19 pandemic. The policy package for commercial banks includes relaxation measures related to reporting, credit treatment, and governance of restructured credit or financing in accordance with the Circular POJK No.11/POJK.03/2020. The package also addresses adjustment of implementation of several banking regulations and postponement of implementation of Basel III reforms. Moreover, OJK relaxed policy measures for rural credit banks and "Islamic People's Financing Banks." It published a circular on amendments to the minimum capital requirements and fulfillment of minimum core capital for Sharia rural banks. The amendments have been in effect from May 20, 2020. Additionally, OJK issued a statement highlighting that the stability of the financial services sector has been maintained until May, even amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The relaxation policy package for conventional commercial banks and Sharia commercial banks includes the following measures:

    • According to the  POJK No.11/POJK.03/2020, restructured credit or financing are reported in the Financial Information Services System (SLIK).
    • The obligation to fulfill the Capital Conservation Buffer in the capital component of 2.5% of the Risk Weighted Assets for banks (BUKU 3 and BUKU 4) is temporarily removed until March 31, 2021.
    • Obligations to fulfill Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) and Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR) for banks (BUKU 3, BUKU 4, and Foreign Banks) must be maintained as low as 85% by March 31, 2021. Banks are required to prepare action plans to return the fulfillment of LCR and NSFR to 100% no later than April 30, 2021.
    • Assessment of Foreclosed Collateral Quality based on the term of ownership can be paused until March 31, 2021.
