    BCBS Report Examines Progress on Adoption of Basel III Framework

    October 14, 2021

    The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) published the progress report on adoption of the Basel III regulatory framework in member jurisdictions. The report sets out the jurisdictional adoption status of the Basel III standards as of the end of September 2021. This includes the Basel III post-crisis reforms published by BCBS in December 2017 and the finalized minimum capital requirements for market risk published in January 2019. Since the previous report in July 2020, member jurisdictions have made further progress in implementing standards, especially those whose deadlines have passed, despite the disruptions resulting from COVID-19 pandemic and the required shift in regulatory and supervisory priorities.

    The report highlights that all jurisdictions now have final rules in force for the countercyclical capital buffer (CCyB). In respect of the outstanding capital standards, there have been eleven new adoptions. This includes three additional jurisdictions (Australia, Mexico, and US) that have adopted the final rules with regard to total loss-absorbing capacity (TLAC); two additional jurisdictions (Russia and South Africa) that have adopted final rules for standardized approach for measuring counterparty credit risk exposure (SA-CCR) and capital requirements for equity investments in funds; and four additional jurisdictions (Switzerland, Japan, Mexico, and US) that have adopted the net stable funding ratio (NSFR) standard. There have been seven additions across the disclosure parts of the framework too, in addition to the new adopters of the revised operational risk framework and the revised standardized approach for credit risk. The report excludes standards that have been already implemented by all jurisdictions, such as the liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) and the capital conservation buffers.

    Further evaluation of the consistency of jurisdictional implementation is addressed through the Regulatory Consistency Assessment Program (RCAP) assessments. The outstanding RCAP on the net stable funding ratio and large exposures framework are expected to resume soon, as they were suspended last year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The report is complemented by a newly developed dashboard to reflect the full history of Basel III implementation and provide an overview of the progress up to date. The dashboard will be updated regularly and is intended to replace the existing report publications.
