BCBS 239 Compliance

Principles for effective risk data aggregation and risk reporting


Basel Committee on Banking Supervision

BCBS 239 is the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision’s standard number 239 (BCBS 239). Originally developed as a response to the 2007-08 financial crisis, it aims to enhance risk management and decision-making at banks to improve financial stability worldwide.

The standard addresses the “too big to fail” interdependence of Global Systemically Important Banks (G-SIBs) and Domestic Systemically Important Banks (D-SIBs), encouraging their risk data aggregation capabilities and internal risk reporting practices.

Challenges to BCBS 239 Compliance

Key challenges and components of BCBS 239 require financial institutions to strengthen their ability to identify, manage, and monitor their high-risk data; establish actionable governance and data management practices; and reduce risk.

Governance and Infrastructure

Banks need to establish strong governance, data architecture, and IT infrastructure arrangements.

Risk Data Aggregation

Banks must be able to create accurate and reliable risk data that is complete, up-to-date, and adaptable to changing needs and requests.

Risk Reporting

Risk management reports must accurately reflect risk, be reconciled and validated, have a comprehensive scope, and communicate clearly.
