Spanish term or phrase: piso
I'm translating a power point presentation for a major bank, the title of the ppt is "International Experiences in RBS".
When discussing one of the processes put in place by the China Securities Regulatory Commission, the title of a paragraph says: "Programa combina “piso” + RBS + muestra aleatoria". Than below "piso" is defined as follows: "todos los informes anuales tienen una revisión rápida" (it's more the description of a process than a definition).

I can't figure out what this "piso" is, I've used every possible feature of the search engines I use.

Thank you all for your help!
