Guidelines on stress tests of deposit guarantee schemes

status: Final and translated into the EU official languages

The proposed Guidelines will provide the methodological principles to assess whether the operational and funding capabilities of deposit guarantee schemes (DGSs) are sufficient to ensure deposit protection in the event of a bank failure. In line with the Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive (DGSD), these Guidelines will promote the quality and the consistency of these stress tests. The resulting data will also facilitate future peer reviews by the EBA, contributing to a safe and sound EU framework for the benefit of depositors and financial stability.
