Based on the results of the resilience assessment, the required level of regulatory capital adequacy ratio (H2) and capital adequacy ratio (H3) will be determined for banks, the central bank said.

In addition, the regulator will conduct the annual resilience assessment as of January 1, 2021, which provides an asset quality review (AQR) for 72 of the 73 operating banks (except for the Settlement Center, which performs only settlement operations.
