Basel Committee on Banking Supervision
The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision is a forum for cooperation between bank supervisors established in 1974 by the G10 and hosted by the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland.
The Basel Committee is the primary global standard-setter for the prudential regulation of banks. It seeks to strengthen the regulation, supervision and practices of banks to support financial stability.
The Committee's work is overseen by the Group of Governors and Heads of Supervision (GHOS).
