Global standards are widely considered to pose a challenge to developing countries as they can restrict the innovation and adoption of new products and services that would promote greater access to finance.
The survey on the implementation of the Basel framework was distributed to members of the Global Standard Proportionality Working Group (GSPWG) in October 2017 and to the broader AFI network in May and June 2018. The purpose of the survey was to better understand the current approach and practices of AFI member institutions in implementing the Basel framework in their respective jurisdictions. The analysis in this survey report is intended to provide a snapshot of how AFI member institutions are implementing the Basel framework, including applying proportionality to the standards, and the challenges they face.
