The Basel Committee has published a Handbook for jurisdictional assessments as part of the Regulatory Consistency Assessment Programme (RCAP). It sets out guidance, principles and processes for assessing compliance with Basel III standards in relation to risk-based capital standards, the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) and global systemically important banks. It also introduces RCAP questionnaires, to be completed ahead of the assessment. They concern:

  • risk-based capital standards;
  • the Liquidity Coverage Ratio; and
  • revised Pillar 3 disclosure requirements.
