Principles of Banking Law provides an authoritative take on banking and services law, with coverage of global banking regulation, payment systems, capital markets, and trade finance. The text takes an international perspective, helping locate domestic banking law and financial law in its wider context. It takes a themed, policy-oriented approach to the subject. The text is composed of four parts. The first part looks at banks and bank regulation. Part II considers banks and customers. Part III examines payment and payment systems. The final part looks at banks and finance.

This chapter assesses international banking supervision. The solution to the issues in international banking has been the development of procedures that seek to encourage coordination or cooperation between national supervisors. This has been facilitated by the creation of international organisations that have allowed large numbers of countries to discuss, agree, and promote not only supervisory standards, but also regulatory rules. Together, these organisations constitute the international financial architecture that seeks to ensure financial stability by addressing a number of different issues. Two of the key bodies in international banking regulation include the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and the Financial Stability Board (FSB). Ultimately, the proliferation of international banking in recent decades, and the need to ensure that banking supervision takes place on a consolidated basis, has led to calls for the creation of a single global regulator.
