  • EBA Board of Supervisors agrees a template for the MoU to facilitate supervisory cooperation between the EU and UK supervisors in case of a no-deal Brexit

    The Board of Supervisors of the European Banking Authority (EBA) agreed a template for the memorandum of understanding (MoU) outlining provisions of supervisory cooperation and information exchange between the EU supervisory authorities and the UK Prudential Regulatory Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The template will serve as the basis for bilateral MoUs that are being negotiated and signed by the relevant EU competent authorities and the UK authorities. The template forms part of the authorities’ preparations should the UK leave the EU without a ratified withdrawal agreement (the no-deal scenario). The MoUs will, therefore, only take effect in the event of a no-deal scenario materialising.

  • EBA publishes updated impact of the final Basel III reforms on EU banks capital and updates on the compliance with liquidity measures in the EU

    The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today two reports, which measure the impact of implementing the final Basel III reforms and monitor the current implementation of liquidity measures in the EU. The EBA Basel III capital monitoring report includes a preliminary assessment of the impact of the Basel reform package on EU banks, assuming its full implementation. The report on liquidity measures monitors and evaluates the liquidity coverage requirements currently in place in the EU. Overall, the EBA estimates that the Basel III reforms, once fully implemented, would determine an average increase by 19.1% of EU banks' Tier 1 minimum required capital. The liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) of EU banks, which was fully implemented in January 2018, stood at around 146% on average in June 2018, materially above the minimum threshold of 100%. However, some individual institutions reported shortfalls in the overall LCR.

  • EBA updates list of Other Systemically Important Institutions (O-SIIs)

    The European Banking Authority (EBA) updated today the 2018 list of Other Systemically Important Institutions (O-SIIs) in the EU. O-SIIs - those institutions which, along with Global Systemically Important Institutions (G-SIIs), are deemed systemically important - have been identified by the relevant authorities across the Union according to harmonised criteria provided by the EBA Guidelines. This list also reflects the additional capital buffers that the relevant authorities have set for the identified O-SIIs. For the first time, the list of O-SIIs is made available in a user-friendly visualisation tool format, including the information on O-SII buffers assigned to identify institutions across the EU.
