The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BIS) today published a fourth set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) on the Basel III definition of capital. The Committee periodically reviews frequently asked questions and publishes answers along with any necessary technical elaboration of the rules text and interpretative guidance. The FAQs published in this document correspond to the definition of capital sections of the Basel III standards and the 13 January 2011 press release on the loss absorbency of capital at the point of non-viability.
