This review is on Basel II, focusing on debates and progressive discussion about its importance and significance to the Banking industry and the overall macroeconomic needs of the countries incorporating it into their banking system.

It utilises various Academic articles and journals in a balanced discussion of critical issues about its effective implementation and development among developed countries like Europe (EEC) through the CRD directives; India (emerging economies) and developing economies.

In achieving this, consideration is given to some of the importance and critical problems and key fundamental issues within the various pillars such as the Pillar I (Credit risk: LGD; Operations risks; Market risks).

Pillar II: supervisory Review and Pillar III: Market discipline and disclosure matters and how it has impacted the current financial crisis around the world; especially among G-10 countries, and the urgency of regulatory reforms to make it better in the near future.

Conclusive analysis on this review looks into some of the loopholes and areas that need further research and general problematic areas that could be reformed in the future Basel III reforms.
