Certified Basel III Professional (CBP)

Basel III is a global regulatory standard on bank capital adequacy, stress testing, and market liquidity risk. Having initially been agreed upon by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision in 2010-11. Changes to the Accord have extended the implementation to 31st March 2019. Basel III strengthens bank capital requirements by increasing bank liquidity and decreasing bank leverage.

Basel III differs from Basel I & II in that it requires different levels of reserves for different forms of deposits and other types of borrowings, so it does not supersede them so much as it does work alongside Basel I and Basel II.
