BCBS D504 is a document published by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision on June 2020 in the Credit Risk category.


Capital treatment of securitisations of non-performing loans.


The Committee is publishing this technical amendment to address a gap in the regulatory framework and set out a prudent treatment for securitisations of non-performing loans. The proposal was being developed by the Committee before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The technical amendment establishes a 100% risk weight for certain senior tranches of non-performing loan securitisations. The risk weight applicable to the other positions are determined by the existing hierarchy of approaches, in conjunction with a 100% risk weight floor and a ban on the use of certain inputs for capital requirements. The present amendment does not change the applicable capital requirements to securitisations of performing assets.
