ABA Statement on Finalization of Basel IV Standards

“We appreciate the important role global standards play in promoting comparable and coordinated supervision across international jurisdictions. At the same time, it’s important that U.S. regulators implement those standards and write the implementing regulations in a manner that’s consistent with our country’s interests and financial conditions. We urge regulators to seek early public comment before drafting implementing rules through an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking so that the public can provide input on the new standards that will improve their effectiveness and support economic growth in the U.S.”
