From Open Risk Manual


BCBS 222 is a document published by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision on June 2012 in the Supervision category.


Principles for effective risk data aggregation and risk reporting - consultative document.


The financial crisis that started in 2007 revealed that many banks, including global systemically important banks (G-SIBs), were unable to aggregate risk exposures fully and quickly. This meant that banks' ability to take risk decisions in a timely fashion was seriously impaired with wide-ranging consequences for individual banks and the stability of the financial system as a whole. The Basel Committee's proposed Principles for effective risk data aggregation and risk reporting - consultative documentare intended to strengthen banks' risk management capabilities. This should ensure banks are better prepared to cope with stress, hence reducing the potential recourse to tax-payers.
