Notice issued by the Bank's Banking Supervision Division 8 January 1987.

Following discussions in Washington and London during the last three months, the Bank of England and the US Federal Banking Regulatory Authorities have reached agreement on proposals for a common measure of capital adequacy. This initiative is in response to growing demands from banks with international activities that there should be convergence in national supervisory systems, particularly in the area of capital adequacy.
