    The Basel III reforms have now been integrated into the consolidated Basel Framework, which comprises all the current and forthcoming standards of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.

    Basel III is an internationally agreed set of measures developed by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision in response to the financial crisis of 2007-09; the measures aim to strengthen the regulation, supervision and risk management of banks. Like all Basel Committee standards, Basel III standards are minimum requirements and apply to banking organisations in more than 120 countries.

    This workshop provides a comprehensive overview/perspective of how banks need to tackle the prudential regulation, i.e. achieving compliance with high standards of supervision, in particular requirements related to Basel III, and its finalisation reform, which is commonly called “Basel IV”.
