Basel Committee on Banking Supervision issues guidance on operational risk
June 25, 2011:
The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has issued two papers on operational risk: Principles for the Sound Management of Operational Risk and Operational Risk – Supervisory Guidelines for the Advanced Measurement Approaches.
Principles for the Sound Management of Operational Risk, which was originally issued in 2003 as Sound Practices for the Management and Supervision of Operational Risk, highlights the evolution of operational risk management over this period. The principles outlined in the report are based on best industry practice and supervisory experience and cover three overarching themes: governance, risk management and disclosure.
The Committee also issued Operational Risk – Supervisory Guidelines for the Advanced Measurement Approaches. The regulatory capital adequacy framework envisages that, over time, the operational risk discipline will continue to mature and converge towards a narrower band of effective risk management and measurement practices. The guidance on advanced measurement approaches promotes improvement in this area by setting out supervisory guidelines relating to governance, data and modelling.
Consultative versions of each report were issued for public consultation in December 2010.
The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision provides a forum for regular cooperation on banking supervisory matters. It seeks to promote and strengthen supervisory and risk management practices globally. The Committee comprises representatives from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong SAR, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.
