Posted: 17 May 2019  |  Source: EBA


The European Banking Authority (EBA) is currently finalising its impact assessment on the implementation of Basel III, in response to the European Commission's call for advice it received on 4 May 2018. The findings of the assessment in the areas of credit risk, operational risk, output floor and securities financing transactions will be published in a report by the end of July 2019. The findings in the area of market risk and CVA will be published at a later stage, owing to the later completion of these parts of the Basel III framework.

The assessment is based on a comprehensive data collection and supplemented with evidence provided by the banking industry in the form of a qualitative questionnaire.

Before the publication of its advice to the European Commission, the EBA will present the quantitative findings and its main policy recommendations at a public hearing, which will be held at the EBA premises in Paris on 2 July 2019, from 15:00 to 18:00 CET. The deadline for registration is 11 June 2019 at 17:00 (CET).
