Basel Committee publishes tenth report on Basel III adoption

April 11, 2016

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) has today issued its tenth progress report on adoption of the Basel III standards.

The report finds that, as of March 2016:

  • all 27 BCBS member jurisdictions have final risk-based capital rules and Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) regulations and capital conservation buffers in force
  • 24 member jurisdictions have issued final rules for the countercyclical capital buffer and 23 have issued final or draft rules for their domestic systemically important bank (D-SIB) framework
  • member jurisdictions are now turning to the implementation of other Basel III standards, including the Leverage Ratio and the Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR)
