European Banking Authority Consults on Guidelines on Systemic Risk Buffers for Sectoral Exposures
02/12/2020The European Banking Authority has launched a consultation on proposed Guidelines on the appropriate subsets of sectoral exposures to which national regulators may apply a systemic risk buffer under the Capital Requirements Directive. CRD 5 amended the provisions on when a national regulator may set a systemic risk buffer for sectoral exposures. The EBA is mandated to prepare Guidelines to enhance harmonization of the approach across the EU. CRD 5 must be transposed into Member State laws by December 28, 2020 and those laws must be applied from December 29, 2020. Responses to the consultation can be submitted until May 12, 2020. Once finalized, the Guidelines will apply to the relevant national regulators from December 29, 2020.
