Default: Change to:

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision published answers to a fourth set of FAQs on the Basel III definition of capital. These aim to promote consistent global implementation of Basel III, by providing clarifications and interpretative guidance on the Committee's standards.

The FAQs published in this document correspond to the definition of capital sections of the Basel III standards and the 13 January 2011 press release on the loss absorbency of capital at the point of non-viability.

These FAQs are in addition to those previously published in July 2011, October 2011 and December 2011. They are grouped according to the relevant paragraphs of the rules text.
