Basel II Capital Accord
Regional Outreach Meetings

Supervisory staff of the Federal Reserve, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation discussed the U.S. implementation of the proposed Basel Accord (Basel II) with invited representatives from about seventy-five large banking organizations at three outreach meetings in 2003: May 22 at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, June 2 at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, and June 3 at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. The meetings provided a forum for the discussion of choices available to banking organizations that are interested in Basel II but are not among the banks that will be required to adopt it.
