BCBS 239 : European and National Regulators are increasing pressure on Risk Data quality
BCBS 239 presents a set of principles aimed at strengthening banks’ governance frameworks, enterprise-wide risk data aggregation capabilities and internal risk reporting practices.
In turn, effective implementation of BCBS 239 is expected to enhance risk management and decision-making processes at banks.
The principles provide descriptive guidance on the infrastructure and capacities that banks should have in place to improve the management of data and risk reporting. Banks are expected to be compliant with all principles, which are summarised in the table below, simultaneously and at all times.
