Status:  Consolidated


This standard has been integrated into the consolidated Basel Framework.

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision finalised the new standardised approach (SA) for operational risk capital, as published in the final Basel III standards in December 2017. To promote consistent global implementation of those requirements, the Committee has agreed to periodically review frequently asked questions (FAQs) and publish answers along with any technical elaboration of the standards text and interpretative guidance that may be necessary. 

The document published today sets out the first set of FAQs on the standard.
