status: Adopted and published on the Official Journal

These  ITS specify the correspondence or ‘mapping’ between credit ratings and credit quality steps that shall determine the allocation of appropriate risk weights to credit ratings issued by ECAIs on securitisations where the Standardised Approach (SA) or the Internal Ratings Based (IRB) approach for securitisations are used.  They will be part of the Single Rulebook in banking aimed at enhancing regulatory harmonisation across the European Union (EU) and will allow the credit ratings of all registered credit rating agencies to be used for the purposes of calculating institutions’ capital requirements.
