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 Argentina. Overall, the domestic implementation of the risk-based capital framework is found to be "compliant" with the Basel standards, the highest possible grade. Ten of the 11 assessed components of the framework are assessed as compliant and one - the scope of application - is assessed as "largely compliant" (one notch below the highest possible grade).
