In order to maintain the capital adequacy standard, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) published the global regulatory framework on Basel-III capital accord in December 2010 in view of strengthening global capital and liquidity rules with the aim of promoting a more resilient banking sector. The objective of the reforms was to improve the banking sector's capacity to absorb shocks arising from financial and economic stress thus reducing the risk of spillover from the financial sector to the real economy. In line with the global reforms, Bangladesh Bank (BB) instructed the scheduled commercial banks to implement the Basel-III capital accord with a roadmap after detailed quantitative impact studies on the banking sector. In continuation of the same, BB recently issued "Guidelines on Risk Based Capital Adequacy (Revised Regulatory Framework for banks in line with Basel-III)" which replaced the previous circulars in this regard.
