A Board-regulated institution might choose to define the geographical areas based on the way the Board-regulated institution's portfolio is geographically managed. The criteria used to allocate the loans to geographical areas must be specified.

4A Board-regulated institution is encouraged also to provide an analysis of the aging of past-due loans.
