Guidelines for the joint assessment and joint decision regarding the capital adequacy of cross-border groups

  • Status:

The Capital Requirements Directive (CRD) requires that the consolidating supervisor and supervisors of subsidiaries involved in the supervision of an EEA cross-border banking group do everything within their power to reach a joint decision on the application of the Pillar 2 provisions related to the Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) and to the Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP). These Guidelines provide concrete guidance on how to cooperate in the risk assessment process and on how to apply the CRD provisions regarding ICAAP, SREP and the prudential measures subject to the joint decision process. Their ultimate aim is to ensure closer convergence of supervisory practices with regard to the joint decision process, while providing some necessary flexibility for individual colleges.
