The "International Convergence of Capital Measurement and Capital Standards - A Revised Framework" (Basel II), issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), is a revised and updated version of the Basel Accord 1988 (Basel I). This framework provides a more risk-sensitive definition of capital adequacy and contains incentives for banks to improve their risk management. Basel II is specifically aimed at internationally active banks and seeks to strengthen the security and soundness of the international financial system by emphasising risk-based calculation of bank capital, the supervisory review process and market discipline. The Basel II Framework is based on a forward-looking approach that enables improvements and adjustments to be made over time. In this way, the Basel II framework is able to keep pace with changes in the marketplace and advances in risk management.
For the G10 nations themselves, Basel II comes into force by the end of 2006. Nevertheless, this timeframe is not binding on non-G10 nations, given that in the development of their supervision processes, each country has different priorities. Among these priorities is improved compliance with the Basel Core Principles for Effective Banking Supervision (BCPs). The state of preparedness for compliance with the various preconditions for Basel II is a key factor in the timeframes adopted by individual countries.  The preparedness encompasses such areas as quality of risk management and of information systems and databases in the banking system. In addition, Basel II implementation is dependent on the condition of infrastructure, which includes accounting standards and establishment of a rating agency, and readiness on part of the supervisory authority, particularly in the area of national discretion.
n August 2004, Bank Indonesia conducted a survey to ascertain bank perceptions of Basel II and the expectations and preferences of banks for implementation of Basel II in Indonesia. The survey also sought information on levels of preparedness, obstacles and constraints faced by Indonesian banks in regard to the planned implementation of Basel II.
