Second set of FAQs on the Liquidity Coverage Ratio issued by the Basel Committee

8 June 2017

Press release

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has today issued a second set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) and answers on Basel III's Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR). These respond to a number of interpretation questions received by the Basel Committee related to the January 2013 publication of the LCR standard.

To promote consistent global implementation of these requirements, the Committee periodically reviews FAQs and publishes answers along with any necessary technical elaboration of the rules text and interpretative guidance. The questions and answers published today are combined with those published in April 2014 and are grouped according to the paragraph number of the related issue within the LCR framework.
