High expectations on further Basel III implementation 

As noted by Group of Central Bank Governors and Heads of Supervision (GHOS) members (link to press release), more than two thirds of member jurisdictions plan to implement all, or the majority of, the standards in 2023 or 2024, with the remaining jurisdictions implementing them in 2025.  
Among those jurisdictions which already published draft regulations for consultation is United Kingdom (UK). According to the latest updates provided by the Bank of England the policy published as near-final in PS17/21 has now been confirmed as final in PS22/21 ‘Implementation of Basel standards: Final rules’.

GHOS members emphasised the importance of organized preparing for the forthcoming implementation of the standards for strengthening the resilience and behaviour of banking system.  

The EBA has published its first mandatory Basel III Monitoring Report

The European Banking Authority (EBA) has published its first mandatory Basel III Monitoring Report which assesses the impact that Basel III full implementation will have on EU banks in 2028. Basel III international regulatory framework aimed at strengthening the regulation, supervision, and risk management of banks. XBRL, in its turn, was chosen as a machine-readable format for collection of the prudential data from banks, improving the efficiency and integrity of the analysis and oversight.

Overall, the results of the Basel III capital monitoring exercise find that European banks' minimum Tier 1 capital requirement would increase by 15.0% at the full implementation date in 2028, and for large and internationally active banks (Group 1) would increase by 16.0%. In order to comply with the new framework, EU banks would need EUR 1.2 billion of additional Tier 1 capital.
