CECL Basics

What is CECL?

CECL is an acronym for Current Expected Credit Loss, and is used as shorthand for the new GAAP standard put forth by the FASB to include expected life-of-loan (LOL) losses in the allowance for credit losses for financial assets that are not accounted for at fair value through net income. It is a change from the current incurred-loss model.


IFRS 9 is the International Accounting Standards Board’s (IASB) analog of CECL.

CECL Implementation Dates

For public business entities that are U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filers, the new CECL standard takes effect for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019.

For all other entities, the amendments in this Update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020.


OCC 2011-12/SR 11-7

All RiskSpan developed models utilized in the process are validated in accordance with OCC 2011-12/SR 11-7 and the validation reports are available to the customer.


Additionally, quarterly back-testing is performed on these models and the results will also be available to the customer.  RiskSpan will provide the resources necessary to support the validity of the models when subject to audit or regulatory inquiry.
