Bundesbanker expects Basel III to take effect mid-2013

An international agreement on bank capital rules known as Basel III may not be implemented until the middle of next year, Handelsblatt reported, citing a member of the German Bundesbank's board.

Dombret, in charge of financial stability on the board of the Frankfurt-based Bundesbank, said he was "very confident" that the United States would implement the new set of Basel rules, according to Handelsblatt.
