CREDIT RISK GRADING MANUAL - BANK

Bangladesh Bank vide its BRPD Circular No.18 dated December 11, 2005 advised all Banks to implement Credit Risk Grading for their borrowing clients as per Credit Risk Grading Manual.

The Credit Risk Grading Manual released earlier was applicable only in case of lending to commercial clients. The area which required to be focused was how to risk rate an obligor if it is a Banking Company or a Non-Banking Financial Institution.

Basel II compliance also calls for risk rating of the obligor, which includes all clients like commercial, banking and non-banking financial institution.

Keeping the above objective in mind, Credit Risk Grading Manual for Bank has been developed.

The Credit Risk Grading Manual for Bank was completed and reviewed by a review committee consisting of members from NCBs, PCBs and FCBs who are specifically involved in credit approval function.
