EBA proposes corrections to the adopted technical standards on non-delta risk options and identified staff

16 July 2015

The European Banking Authority (EBA) issued today amendments to the adopted Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) on the treatment of non-delta risk of options in the standardised market risk approach and to the RTS on the criteria to identify categories of staff whose professional activities have a material impact on an institution's risk profile. These two RTS were published by the European Commission as Delegated Acts on 20 May 2014 and 6 June 2014, respectively.

During the legal adoption process of these two RTS, The European Commission introduced changes, which have inadvertently altered their meaning. The EBA is, therefore, proposing to amend the text of these two Delegated Acts to ensure they reflect the intention of the text originally submitted to the European Commission in December 2013.
