Over rated Circuit Breakers

Can any one advise the regulations concerning Over rated protection devices, I am well aware that a circuit breaker must be adequate for its application, but what are the regulations regarding a circuit breaker that is over rated for the load, I.E. a 10A load with a 32A circuit breaker, what is the rule regarding the maximum above the load rating that a circuit breaker should and can be and is there a calculation for this.

any help would be greatly appreciated.
