The Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) has published its observations on the risk-weighted treatment of exposures under the Bounce Back Loan Scheme, particularly eligibility for recognition as unfunded credit risk mitigation under the Capital Requirements Regulation. 

The PRA release also sets out a change to the UK leverage ratio framework. The regulator is offering a modification by consent for banks subject to the UK Leverage Ratio Part of the PRA Rulebook to exclude loans under this scheme from the leverage ratio total exposure measure, if they choose to do so.
