Basel Committee Issues Consultative Paper on Home-host Supervisory Co-operation
The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has issued for public comment a paper entitled ‘Principles for home-host supervisory cooperation and allocation mechanisms in the context of Advanced Measurement Approaches (AMA)’. The paper sets out principles related to two important topics in the implementation of the advanced measurement approaches for operational risk under Basel II. The first set of principles focuses specifically on supervisory co-operation in the context of banks implementing an AMA. These principles are intended as a supplement to the paper ‘Home-host information sharing for effective Basel II implementation’ issued by the Committee in June 2006. The second set of principles builds on the 2004 paper ‘Principles for the home-host recognition of AMA operational risk capital’ and specifically addresses allocation mechanisms developed as part of a hybrid AMA.
