Loss Data Collection Exercise (LDCE)

The 2004 Operational Risk Loss Data Collection Exercise (LDCE) is a voluntary survey that asks banking organizations to report the amount of individual operational losses as well as certain descriptive information regarding each loss (e.g., date, business line, loss type, etc.). The survey asks banks to report all losses that occurred on or before June 30, 2004 or September 30, 2004 – consistent with the data used for the capital amounts that a bank reports for operational risk in QIS4.

The LDCE should provide supervisors with the ability to assess the extent to which the QIS4 results are driven by internal loss data and the factors that an institution considers in its modeling approaches and qualitative risk assessments.

The agencies have requested institutions to respond to the survey by November 22, 2004.
