EU published, in the Official Journal of the European Union, a corrigendum to the revised Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR2 or Regulation 2019/876). The corrigendum makes changes to text in various articles in the regulation, including articles related to the application of disclosure requirements on a consolidated basis; qualifying additional tier 1, tier 1, tier 2 capital and qualifying own funds; and index holdings of capital instruments and of liabilities. Additional corrections relate to certain articles on calculation of the leverage ratio, adjustment of risk-weighted non-defaulted small and medium-size enterprise exposures, and net stable funding requirements.
CRR2 amends CRR (Regulation 575/2013) regarding leverage ratio, net stable funding ratio, requirements for own funds and eligible liabilities, counterparty credit risk, market risk, exposures to central counterparties, exposures to collective investment undertakings, large exposures, and reporting and disclosure requirements. CRR2 entered into force on June 27, 2019.
