On 14 November 2019, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision published a consultative document on voluntary disclosure templates related to banks’ sovereign exposures. The templates break down a bank’s sovereign exposures by country, currency and accounting treatment. The templates build upon the contents of the Basel Committee’s December 2017 discussion paper on the regulatory treatment of sovereign exposures and the feedback received. The deadline for comments on the consultative document is 14 February 2020.
