ESRB updated the overview of national macro-prudential measures in the EU and the European Economic Area. The overview of measures of national macro-prudential interest covers several measures, including capital buffers and reciprocation measures. National authorities are required to notify ESRB about their macro-prudential measures, in accordance with the Capital Requirements Directive (CRD IV), the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR), and various ESRB recommendations.
The capital buffers in the overview of macro-prudential measures include capital conservation buffer, countercyclical capital buffer, global systemically important institution buffer, other systemically important institution buffer, and systemic risk buffer. Other measures include debt-service-to-income, leverage ratio, liquidity ratio, loan amortization, loan maturity, loss-given-default, loan-to-deposit, loan-to-income, loan-to-value, Pillar II, risk-weights, and stress test/sensitivity test. ESRB periodically publishes an overview of the national capital-based measures and an overview of the national macro-prudential measures, which includes all types of current and past measures.
