Japan's regulator scraps guidelines for bank provisions against bad loans

Japan's Financial Services Agency is scrapping its "financial inspection manual," a set of guidelines aimed at supervising bank lending, the Nikkei reported Dec. 18.

The guidelines about bank provisions against bad loans were issued after the burst of Japan's asset price bubble in 1999.

Banks now have more discretion in their lending, giving them greater flexibility in assessing risk factors in financing activities.
