EBA updates on the 2018 EU-wide stress test timeline

27 February 2017

The Board of Supervisors of the European Banking Authority (EBA) agreed in its meeting held on 14 February on the tentative timeline of the 2018 EU-wide stress test. The exercise is expected to be launched at the beginning of 2018 and the results to be published in mid-year. The EBA, in co-operation with Competent Authorities, is now in the process of preparing the methodology and templates with the objective of discussing with the industry in summer 2017. The new methodology will be revised to take into account the implementation of IFRS 9 both in the starting points as well as in the projections.
