Status:  Current

Through its Regulatory Consistency Assessment Programme (RCAP), the Basel Committee monitors the timely adoption of regulations by its members, assesses their consistency with the Basel framework and analyses the quality of intended regulatory outcomes. The RCAP also helps member jurisdictions to identify deviations from the Basel framework and assesses their materiality. This report describes the Committee's assessment of the implementation of the Basel capital standards in Mexico. 

Overall, the implementation of risk-based capital standards is found to be "compliant" with the Basel standards (the highest possible grade). Twelve out of 14 components are assessed as "compliant", while the countercyclical buffer and Pillar 3 are considered "largely compliant" (one notch below the highest possible grade).
