Regulatory Consistency Assessment Programme (RCAP) - Assessment of Basel III LCR regulations - Japan

December 2016

Through its Regulatory Consistency Assessment Programme (RCAP), the Basel Committee monitors the timely adoption of regulations by its members, assesses their consistency with the Basel framework and analyses the quality of intended regulatory outcomes. The RCAP also helps member jurisdictions to identify deviations from the Basel framework and assesses their materiality. 

This report describes the Committee's assessment of the implementation of the Basel Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) standards in Japan. The Japanese regulations have been assessed as compliant, the highest possible grade. 

The report also provides information on the local implementation of the Committee's Principles for sound liquidity risk management and the monitoring tools for liquidity risk.
