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.
