Basel Coordination Committee Bulletins

The following Basel Coordination Committee (BCC) Bulletins provide examination guidance relating to the implementation of the advanced approaches risk-based capital rule (advanced approaches rule). The BCC consists of Federal Reserve System staff who are responsible for overseeing the Federal Reserve System's process for implementing the advanced approaches rule. These BCC Bulletins address specific matters relating to the advanced approaches rule and are applicable to only a few large, internationally active banking organizations. As such, the guidance is decisively technical in nature and is primarily for relevant supervisory staff and banking organization personnel with extensive background knowledge of the rule. To view the advanced approaches rule, see 12 CFR 217, subpart E.

For more information about the BCC Bulletins and Board contact information, see SR letter 13-4, "Advanced Approaches Risk-Based Capital Rule Examination Guidance on the Board's Public Website," which announces the availability of the BCC Bulletins.
