The Basel III reforms, developed in response to the financial crisis of 2007-09, were finalised in December 2017 by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. Basel III aims to strengthen the regulation, supervision and risk management of banks. Basel III framework includes the micro prudential (relating to the safety and soundness of individual banks) and the macro prudential approaches (for identifying vulnerabilities in the financial system and taking appropriate policy measures to strengthening financial stability). The accounting standards (e.g., IFRS 9), by mandating appropriate provisioning requirements strengthen the capital regulation regime and can also have macro prudential implications by mitigating procyclicality. The accounting standards provide the basis on which NPA identification and measurement is carried out. The NPA identification and measurement has significant prudential implications as it can directly affect the regulatory capital.
