1. The Financial Stability BoardG (FSB), in consultation with the Basel CommitteeG , identifies and periodically publishes a list of global systemically important banks.
2. If the DFSA is the consolidated supervisor of a GroupG included on the FSB list of global systemically important banks, it will designate an Authorised FirmG in the GroupG that is a bank as a G-SIB (see Rule 1.4.1).
3. If an Authorised FirmG that is a bank is part of a GroupG included on the FSB list, but the DFSAG is not the consolidated supervisor of that Group, the DFSAG may designate that Authorised FirmG as a G-SIB if it considers it is appropriate to do so in all the circumstances (see Rule 1.4.2). If the DFSAG proposes to designate an Authorised FirmG as a G-SIB where it is not the consolidated supervisor of the relevant GroupG , it will normally consult first with the consolidated supervisor to ensure that the supervisors are taking a co-ordinated approach.
4. A G-SIB, in addition to being subject to more intensive supervision, must maintain an extra capital buffer (the HLA Capital Buffer) under PIB section 3.9B. At the consolidated GroupG level, a G-SIB also has to publish quantitative indicators relating to its systemic importance (see PIB Rule 11.1.3 and App 11 Table 15) and carry out recovery and resolution planning.
