BCBS 7 A is a document published by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision on April 1990 in the Cross-Border Issues category.


Exchanges of information between banking and securities supervisors.


The objective of this paper is to examine, in the light of the experience of the G 10 supervisory institutions, possible ways of facilitating flows of prudential information between banking and securities supervisors. While the paper is confined, in view of its authorship, to these particular flows, the issues it considers are also relevant to exchanges with the regulators of other disciplines (particularly insurance regulators).
