Recommendation on the creation and supervisory oversight of temporary capital buffers to restore market confidence (EBA/REC/2011/1)
This Recommendation states that national supervisory authorities should require the banks included in the sample to strengthen their capital positions by building up an exceptional and temporary capital buffer against sovereign debt exposures to reflect market prices as at the end of September. In addition, banks will be required to establish an exceptional and temporary buffer such that the Core Tier 1 capital ratio reaches a level of 9% by the end of June 2012. The amount of any capital shortfall identified is based on September 2011 figures and the amount of the sovereign capital buffer will not be revised. Sales of sovereign bonds will not alleviate the buffer requirement to be achieved by June 2012.
