The case of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) illustrated the many existing gaps in the international rules and standards governing bank supervision.

This book deals with these rules and advocates how they should develop. It is based on the thesis that the rules essentially 'percolate' from the national, regional and international levels and that these areas have become integrally interconnected.

The book concludes with proposals suggesting ways of better interconnecting the national, regional and international levels through more formal, legalistic and transparent structures. The work is aimed at the financial institutions community, legal practitioners and academics.

Devising International Bank Supervisory Standards is the third volume in the International Banking and Finance Law series, which has been designed to provide a broad foundation for comparative analysis of changes and reforms occurring worldwide in international banking regulation and practice. It proves a valuable tool in the comprehension of both policies and practicalities reflected by these rapid changes and reforms.
