EU published the finalized fifth Capital Requirements Directive CRD V (EU Directive 2019/878) in the Official Journal of the European Union. Directive 2019/878 of the European Parliament and of the Council amends the fourth Capital Requirements Directive, or CRD IV (Directive 2013/36/EU). The amendments to CRD IV relate to exempted entities, financial holding companies, mixed financial holding companies, remuneration, supervisory measures and powers, and capital conservation measures. CRD V shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of their publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. Directive 2019/878 specifies that the members states shall adopt and publish the measures necessary to comply with CRD V by December 28, 2019, with certain exceptions, as specified in the Article 3 (titled "Transposition") of CRD V.
CRD V aims to address issues raised in relation to the provisions of CRD IV that proved not to be sufficiently clear and have, therefore, been subject to divergent interpretations or that have been found to be overly burdensome for certain institutions. It also contains adjustments to CRD IV that are necessary following either the adoption of other relevant Union legal acts or the changes proposed in parallel to the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR). Finally, the amendments better align the current regulatory framework to international developments to promote consistency and comparability among jurisdictions.
The member states shall adopt and publish, by December 28, 2020, the measures necessary to comply with this Directive and shall immediately inform the Commission thereof. They shall apply those measures from December 29, 2020. However, the provisions necessary to comply with the amendments set out in point (21) and points (29)(a), (b), and (c) of Article 1 of CRD V as regards Article 84 and Article 98(5) and (5a) of CRD IV shall apply from June 28, 2021 and the provisions necessary to comply with the amendments set out in points (52) and (53) of Article 1 of CRD V as regards Articles 141b, 141c, and 142(1) of CRD IV shall apply from January 01, 2022.
