Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) on Disclosure for Own Funds

Status: Adopted and published in the Official Journal

These technical standards aim at ensuring a uniform approach to disclosure for own funds by institutions and across jurisdictions in order to allow detailed assessments of banks’ capital positions and to make cross-jurisdictional comparisons. The requirements contained in the draft ITS are directed at institutions which are requested to complete three sets of templates: a general own funds disclosure template reflecting the capital position of institutions; a transitional disclosure template covering the phasing in of the regulatory adjustments and a template describing the main features of an institution’s capital instruments.

EBA publishes first final draft technical standards on own funds

26 July 2013

The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today its final draft Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) on own funds. These final draft ITS will be part of the Single Rulebook aimed at enhancing regulatory harmonisation in the banking sector in Europe and namely at strengthening the quality of capital.

These ITS on disclosure for own funds focus on disclosure requirements and aim at increasing transparency on regulatory capital held by European institutions.

Legal basis and next steps

These final RTS and ITS have been developed in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms and amending Regulation (EU) No 648/2012 (colloquially known as Capital Requirements Regulation or CRR).

The final standards have been sent today to the European Commission for their adoption as EU Regulations that will be directly applicable throughout the EU.
