The financial sector and international banking environment in particular has changed dramatically over the past years. In order to reach and maintain stability and sustainability in the global banking system, decrease risk of insolvency, and to cover unexpected losses, countries (EU in particular) have started implementing the new capital adequacy rules (Basel II) following the worldwide consensus among G-10 central bank Governors by which banks’ capital levels should be regulated to enhance global financial stability. Since Bosnia and Herzegovina is still in the beginning of its path towards Basel II legislation and implementation, using detailed literature review and an in-depth analysis this study conducts a comparative analysis on the implementation of Basel II in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Croatia, and Serbia, with regard to both the qualitative and quantitative implementation details and issues which include the implementation stages, progress, and timetables and particular challenges faced by the countries. Moreover, study reveals Bosnia and Herzegovina’s unique situation, challenges and obstacles on the path towards full implementation of Basel II standards and puts an emphasis on how implementation and adoption will affect its banking and economic stability, future and conditions. Keywords: Basel II, banking supervision, capital adequacy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, central bank, banking agency, risk, risk weight, challenge, adoption, implementation.
