Press Release: EBA advises the European Commission on the implementation of the final Basel III framework

The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today its advice on the implementation of Basel III in the EU, which includes a quantitative analysis of the estimated impact based on data from 189 banks, and a set of policy recommendations. This work responds to a Commission’s call for advice. The impact assessment shows that the full implementation of Basel III, under conservative assumptions, will increase the minimum capital requirement (MRC) by 24.4% on average. This increase in capital requirements will imply an aggregate shortfall in total capital of about EUR 135.1 billion (EUR 91.1 billion in terms of common equity tier 1, CET1). The majority of the capital impact occurs in large globally active banks, while the impact on medium-sized banks is limited to 11.3% in terms of MRC, leading to a shortfall of EUR 0.9 billion, and on small banks to 5.5% MRC with a EUR 0.1 billion shortfall. The EBA supports the full implementation of the final Basel III standards, which will contribute to the credibility of the EU banking sector and ensure a well-functioning global banking market.

Press release: EBA responds to the Commission on the Estonian Central Bank’s proposed measures to address macroprudential risk

The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today a response to a letter received from the European Commission (EC) regarding an EBA Opinion on the intention by Eesti Pank, the Estonian Central Bank, to introduce stricter national measures for credit institutions in Estonia using the Internal Ratings Based (IRB) approach, in accordance with Article 458 of the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR). In its Opinion, the EBA had concluded that the evidence presented by Eesti Pank was not sufficient to support the suitability and appropriateness of the suggested measure. In the letter received by the Commission, the EBA was asked to either revise or confirm its Opinion following the submission of additional information by Eesti Pank. In its reply, the EBA assessed that there were not sufficient grounds to change its initial Opinion.

Press Release: Financial services: Commission sets out its equivalence policy with non-EU countries

The European Commission is today taking stock of its overall approach to equivalence in the area of financial services. EU equivalence has become a significant tool in recent years, fostering integration of global financial markets and cooperation with third-country authorities. The EU assesses the overall policy context and to what extent the regulatory regimes of a given third country achieves the same outcomes as its own rules. A positive equivalence decision, which is a unilateral measure by the Commission, allows EU authorities to rely on third-country rules and supervision, allowing market participants from third countries who are active in the EU to comply with only one set of rules. Today’s Communication also sets out how recent updates to EU legislation will ensure even greater effectiveness of the EU single rulebook, supervision and monitoring, while also fostering cross-border business in global markets. The Commission has to date taken over 280 equivalence decisions with regard to over 30 countries.
