The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has issued for consultation, liquidity coverage ratio disclosure standards. This consultation follows the publication of the LCR standard in January 2013 in which the Basel Committee indicated its intention to develop associated disclosure standards.

In designing the disclosure standards for the LCR, the Basel Committee has carefully balanced the benefits of promoting market discipline against the challenges associated with disclosure of liquidity positions under certain circumstances, including the potential for undesirable dynamics during stress periods.

Comments on this consultative document should be submitted by 14 October 2013.
