In accordance with Article 16b) of the EBA founding Regulation, stakeholders can submit questions on the practical application or implementation of the provisions of legislative acts referred to in Article 1(2) of the EBA's founding Regulation, as well as the associated Delegated and Implementing acts, RTS, ITS, Guidelines and Recommendations, adopted under these legislative acts. 

Users should take a note of the following points in particular (some of which reflect changes stemming from the EBA founding Regulation):

  • In accordance with Article 16b (3) of the EBA founding Regulation, all questions under review are to be published on the EBA’s website ‘unless such publication is in conflict with the legitimate interest of those persons or would involve risks to the stability of the financial system’.
  • Rejected questions are published for a period of 2 months, to facilitate illustrating the types of questions that are not suitable. Questions are rejected when requirements set out in the Additional background and guidance for asking questions are not met.
  • The Q&A pages are organised in a way that encourages users to use the 'Search for Q&As' function and to refer to the guidance mentioned above before submitting any questions.

A compilation (in pdf format) of all final Q&As, or subsets, can be obtained via the 'Search for Q&As' function. For additional information, please refer to point 19 of the Additional background and guidance for asking questions


Update: In March 2021 the EBA has completed a review of the final published CRR-CRD and BRRD Q&As against the revised versions of those legislative acts following the amendments introduced in June 2019. This review led to changes for many Q&As, with many having been archived or amended. The changes have been reflected in the tool, either in the archive tab, or by highlighting changes in the final answers as appropriate. (It is noted that the background to questions has only been updated where absolutely necessary.)

An overview of all the reviewed Q&As – grouped by Legal act and filterable by topic – can be accessed here and allows stakeholders to see this information in one place.
