The EBA Single Rulebook question and answer (Q&A) tool updates for this month include answers to 31 questions. The answers address queries on supervisory reporting and market risk. The answers on supervisory reporting cover topics such as COREP and FINREP requirements, large exposures, liquidity risk, and asset encumbrance.
The overall objective of the Q&A tool is to ensure consistent and effective application of regulatory framework across the Single Market. Institutions, supervisors, and other stakeholders can use the Single Rulebook Q&A tool to submit questions on certain EU regulations and directives. These regulations and directives include the revised Capital Requirements Directive (CRD5) and Regulation (CRR2), the revised Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD2), the Securitization Regulation, the Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive (DGSD), the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD), the second Payment Services Directive (PSD 2), the Wire Transfer Regulation (WTR), and the Anti Money Laundering (AML) Directive, along with any related technical standards that EBA has developed and adopted.
