FRANKFURT Jan 3 Global banking regulators have
postponed a meeting at which they were expected to approve new
capital rules designed to avert a repeat of the financial
crisis, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) said on
"More time is needed to finalise some work, including
ensuring the framework's final calibration," the Basel Committee
said on the BIS website.
"A meeting of the GHOS (Group of Central Bank Governors and
Heads of Supervision), originally planned for early January, has
therefore been postponed. The Committee is expected to complete
this work in the near future."
