The Basel II
Framework, issued by the Basel Committe on Banking Supervision in June 2004, is a set of banking regulations that define the minimum capital requirements for internationally active banks and financial entities.
The purpose of Basel II
is to improve the quality of the banking system with better operational risk management practices and prevent bankruptcies by ensuring that banks have adequate capital to support all the risks in their business.
The accords rely on on three main pillars:
- Minimum Capital Requirements: this presents the calculation of the total minimum capital requirements for credit, market and operational risk.
- Supervisory Review Process: this recognises the responsibility of bank management in developing an internal capital assessment process and setting capital targets that are commensurate with the bank’s risk profile and control environment.
- Market Discipline: this requires more disclosure about risk assessment and management processes by banks and financial institutions.
Complying with Basel II
requires appropriate risk measurement and control systems, as well as financial reporting processes, which has an impact on banking IT systems and information security.
