Regulatory Technical Standards on the definition of materiality thresholds for specific risk in the trading book

Adopted and published on the Official Journal

These Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) set out criteria for assessing when the specific risk of debt instruments in the trading book is ‘material’ enough to trigger an evaluation by the competent Authority. 
After this evaluation, competent Authorities will be able to determine whether they shall encourage banks to enhance their internal assessment capacity and increase the use of internal models for capital calculations.
