Theoretical Bases of Regulatory Risks Management in the Internal Control System of Banks

Introduction. The internal control system of large banks should be represented by two agencies: the Internal Audit Service, which will check the whole bank, all units of the credit institution for the manner in which they carry out established internal procedures of credit organization; and internal control service, which should identify the risks of losses due to violations of the laws or internal documents, evaluate regulatory risks, identify cases of conflict of interest, as well as to identify and analyze the operations that «are intricate and unusual nature», i.e., in fact, will serve as the international practice relating to the area of compliance. The emphasis of ICS’s work is transferred to the compliance risk management. Theoretical analysis. The comparative content’s analysis of the concepts of compliance risk and regulatory risk revealed that the concept of regulatory risk in the Russian economic practice is wider, systematic organized, relying on the regulatory framework of the Bank and may be taken as a base in technique of formation building of internal control service in bank. Results. Suggested the author’s definition of regulatory risk. Consideration of bank’s risks in their relationship with the violation of specific external and internal rules, regulations, standards and so on., allowed firstly, prove that the regulatory risk is the base for all other banking risks; secondly, to detect inadequate regulatory frameworks of Russian banks and justify the need for their development; secondly, to detect the imperfection of regulatory frame- works of Russian banks and justify the need for their development.
