Pillar 3 disclosure requirements for remuneration - consultative document

December 2010

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision issued for consultation Pillar 3 disclosure requirements for remuneration.

The objective of these additional Pillar 3 requirements on remuneration is to support an effective market discipline and to allow market participants to assess the quality of the compensation practices. These requirements should also contribute to promote a greater convergence and consistency of disclosure on remuneration.

The Committee's proposed Pillar 3 disclosure requirements on remuneration add greater specificity to the disclosure guidance on this topic that was included in the supplemental Pillar 2 guidance issued by the Committee in July 2009. The proposals cover the main components of sound remuneration practices and take full account of the Financial Stability Board's Principles for Sound Compensation Practices and their related Implementation Standards.

The Basel Committee welcomes comments on this consultative document. Comments should be submitted by Friday, 25 February 2011 by email to: baselcommittee@bis.org. Alternatively, comments may be sent by post to the Secretariat of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, Bank for International Settlements, CH-4002 Basel, Switzerland. All comments may be published on the Bank for International Settlements's website unless a commenter specifically requests confidential treatment.
