10:00 - 11:00 Public Hearing for ED-23 : Revised Capital Adequacy Standard for Institution Offering Islamic Financial Services (Banking Segment)

The aim of ED-23 is to align the IFSB capital adequacy standard (IFSB-15) with global capital standards, particularly the Basel III final reforms. The ED-23 made several enhancements to the IFSB-15 with the aim of making it more comprehensive and robust and in tune with global best practice in terms of regulatory capital adequacy framework for institutions offering Islamic banking services. The incorporation of the global best practices in the Standard will ensure the provision of a level playing field to IIFS vis-à-vis the conventional financial institutions subjected to capital regulatory framework. The ED-23 provides enhanced guidance to the RSAs and with the necessary flexibility for its application across regions and on small to fairly large and sophisticated IIFS. The main objectives of this Standard is to:

a)    Assist the IIFS and their supervisory authorities in the implementation of a capital adequacy framework that will ensure effective coverage of risk exposures of the IIFS and allocation of appropriate capital to cover these risks, thus enhancing the resilience of the IFSI;

b)   Provide enhanced guidance on the maintenance of high-quality regulatory capital components by IIFS, which comply with Sharī`ah rules and principles;

c)   Enhance the guidance provided by the earlier IFSB capital adequacy standards in addressing the capital adequacy requirements of various risk exposures related to Sharī`ah-compliant products and services offered by IIFS;

d)  Provide enhanced guidance on the capital adequacy treatment of an IIFS’s involvement in Sukūk issuance and securitisation processes in various capacities;

e)  Address some specific concerns in the course of implementation of the earlier IFSB capital adequacy standards and guidance notes; and

Adapt international best practices, as well as current and emerging standards, relating to capital adequacy for IIFS
