ACPR published a notice on "procedures for calculating and publishing prudential ratios in the framework of Capital Requirements Directive (CRD) IV." This notice indicated how ACPR intends to monitor compliance with the relevant regulations. This notice is of an explanatory nature and can not take precedence over the provisions of the applicable regulations.
CRD IV contains a number of national options and discretion to allow the adaptation of European rules to the specificities of each national market for measures of general scope or to the specificities of each institution or group for individual measures. The purpose of the notice is to clarify the rules applicable to credit institutions, investment firms, financing companies, third-country branches, and financial holding companies, without prejudice to the positions taken by ECB. ACPR intends, in principle, to act on the basis of the explanations in a proportionate manner, while taking into account the recommendations, decisions, and other requirements of ECB, in its role as supervisor. The notice specifies the positions of ACPR related to the provisions left to the discretion of the competent authorities and informs the relevant persons of the opinions of ACPR regarding the treatment to be reserved for the specificities of the French market. This 2019 notice, which was adopted by the College of the ACPR on July 12, 2019, replaces the previous version entitled "Procedures for calculating the solvency ratio - 2018" on the day after its publication in the official register of the ACPR.
