Annex II, Part 2, section 2.4, column 410 (combined buffer requirement) refers to CRD article 128.
The format of C 06.01 / C 06.02 suggests that column 410 includes column 440 (Conservation Buffer due to Macro-Prudential or Systemic Risk Identified at the Level of a Member State) given that the heading for column 410 embraces column 440.
However Article 128 CRD states:
'combined buffer requirement' means the total Common Equity Tier 1 capital required to meet the requirement for the capital conservation buffer extended by the following, as applicable:
(a) an institution-specific countercyclical capital buffer;
(b) a G-SII buffer;
(c) an O-SII buffer;
(d) a systemic risk buffer;
This does not include column 440 of C 06.01 / C 06.02, which is set through Article 458 CRR.
Clarification is hence sought as to whether
(A) 410 = 420 + 430 + 450 + 460.
or (B) 410 = 420 + 430 + 440 + 450 + 460
Clarification for c410 of C 06.00
According to Article 128 of Directive 2013/36/EU (CRD), the 'combined buffer requirement’ means the total Common Equity Tier 1 capital required to meet the requirement for the capital conservation buffer (Articles 128 and 129 CRD) – the level of which may be increased under Article 458 (2) lit. d (iv) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 (CRR) (column 440 of template C 06.01 / C 06.02) - extended by the following, as applicable:
Column 440 of C 06.01 / C 06.02 must not be excluded from (i.e. has to be included in) the ‘combined buffer requirement’ due to the fact that it does not constitute a separate buffer requirement: Article 458 (2) lit. d (iv) CRR rather allows competent authorities to adjust the level of the capital conservation buffer under Article 129 CRD to mitigate the changes in the intensity of risk.
Column 460 is going to be deleted in a future version of the ITS on Supervisory Reporting, as such a buffer does not exist. Accordingly, it does not have to be included in column 410.
Hence, institutions shall take into account all applicable buffer requirements reported in columns 420 to 480 of C 06.01 / C 06.02 (disregarding column 460) to determine and report the combined buffer requirement in column 410 of C 06.01 / C 06.02.
The ‘combined buffer requirement’ (column 410) is:
The explanation above applies analogously to rows 740 – 810 of template C 04.00 of Annex I of the ITS on Supervisory Reporting.
