Finalised Basel III standards (Dec 2017) – Call for Advice

On 4 May 2018, the EBA received from the European Commission a Call for Advice (CfA) on the impact and implementation of the finalised Basel III standards (deadline 30 June 2019).

The revisions in the scope of the CfA include the revised standards in the areas of credit risk, operational risk, CVA risk, leverage ratio and output floor – agreed by the BCBS on 7 December 2017 – as well as the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB). In order to respond to the CfA, the EBA took the following initiatives:

  • On 13 August 2018 the EBA launched a data collection exercise which runs in parallel with the June 2018 EBA-BCBS Basel III monitoring exercise;
  • On 9 November 2018 the EBA launched two qualitative questionnaires, addressed to the institutions participating in the QIS and a selected list of External Credit Assessment Institutions (ECAIs) respectively.

QIS templates and instructions, qualitative questionnaires, other related material as well as the results of the CfA analysis are made public on this page as they become available.
