Basel Committee on Banking Supervision

An organization that seeks to provide a supranational framework for banking regulation. It prepares major overhauls to regulatory systems, such as the Basel II Accord. It does not have enforcement authority, but rather makes recommendations to member countries. It was established by the central banks of the G-10 in 1974. It is also called the BIS Committee. It takes both its names from the fact that it meets four times per year at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland.
