The Government has recommended the regulation of activities related to LIBOR and a new set of institutions to administer and oversee LIBOR. The Hogg Committee - has been set up to oversee a process to recommend these new institutions.
For an interim period until a new administrator has been identified and a successful transition has been completed, the BBA has been asked to continue to support the ongoing collection, calculation and distribution of LIBOR rates.
