IFRS Loan Loss Provisioning

Home / Program 2007 / IFRS Loan Loss Provisioning


Currently, Romanian banks calculate provisions both according to NBR regulations(for prudential and fiscal purposes) and to IFRS (for reporting to their mother entities). This duplication will continue after Basel II implementation, unless the related regulations change.

Impact Drivers

  • Public: To align economic, prudential,and tax treatment and credit risk;to ease the reporting burden and associated compliance costs
  • Private: To keep a neutral stance in terms of prudential and credit risk monitoring and management as accounting standards shift to IFRS


To be estimated.

SPI Committee Involvement

To agree on a feasible conversion of prudential standards to reflect new accounting standards that would meet both business reality and supervisory objectives.
