Basel Accord.

The Basel Accord is an agreement reached by central bankers in Basel, Switzerland in 1988. The accord is also known as the Basel Capital Accord, and its full name is the Basel Capital Accord of 1988. The agreement was reached in order to standardize the way that banks calculate their capital requirements. The accord was originally scheduled to go into effect in 1992, but it was delayed until 1994.

The Basel Accord has been revised several times since it was first enacted. The most recent revision was the Basel III Accord, which was reached in 2010. Basel III introduced several new capital requirements, including a requirement that banks hold Tier 1 capital equal to at least 4.5% of their risk-weighted assets.
