BEIJING, May 3 (Xinhua) -- China's banking regulator announced stricter regulation rules for commercial banks Tuesday to help improve capabilities of the country's banking and financial institutions in combating risks.

The China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC) said it would set the minimum capital adequacy ratio for banks of systematic significance at 11.5 percent, while that for banks with non-systematic significance at 10.5 percent.

The banks will have to meet the new standards by the end of 2013 and the end of 2016, respectively.

The criterion of a bank's significance will be determined within this year, CBRC said on its website.

Banks will be restricted in engaging in structurally complicated and highly-leveraged transactions to prevent excessive risk taking.

The systematically important banks are also being told to reduce their share of loans to a single debtor or group customer among their total capital assets.

The new regulation standards will be implemented starting Jan. 1, 2012.
