As part of its annual programme of cooperation with Central banks of emerging economies, the Bank of Italy has organized a seminar in Rome on recent developments in banking supervision, mainly focused on the risk-based approach, consistent with the new Basel II regime. The seminar focuses on the main issues related to the implementation of the Basel II Framework in the Italian regulatory system and supervisory procedures. Topics include the capital and organizational requirements, the market discipline and the principles of the supervisory review process on banks and banking groups.
Representatives from 27 Central banks of new EU member states, EU candidates and potential candidates, countries included in the EU neighbourhood policy and other emerging countries are participating in the seminar. Presentations are delivered by experts from the Bank of Italy.
Participation in the Bank of Italy's international cooperation seminars is by invitation only.
