Nordic Countries Say Could Have Mutual Bank Rule Recognition

The Nordic countries could establish a system of mutual recognition of bank capital requirements for exposures incurred in a neighboring country, the Nordic finance ministries said today in a statement on the Norwegian Finance Ministry’s website.

If implemented, the system could imply that if one country was to implement stricter capital requirements the other Nordic countries would “accept that these requirements were to apply for all relevant exposures incurred in that country” by all Nordic institutions operating there, the group said.
