Consultative Document Guidance on the application of the Core principles for effective banking supervision to the regulation and supervision of institutions relevant to financial inclusion


As stated in the Foreword to the 2012 Core Principles for Effective Banking Supervision (“Core Principles”) of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (“Committee”), “effective banking supervisory practices are not static. They evolve over time as lessons are learned and banking business continues to develop and expand.”

This Guidance is intended to help supervisors respond to changes and innovations in products, services, and delivery channels of financial institutions working to reach the approximately 2 billion adults who do not have an account at a formal financial institution (referred to in this Guidance as “unserved and underserved customers”).
