Under the Single Rulebook question and answer (Q&A) updates for this week, EBA published one answer related to the definition of a qualifying holding entity under the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR). As per the EBA answer, the definition of "qualifying holding" in Article 4(1)(36) of CRR requires the existence of a direct or indirect holding that fulfills one of the two conditions specified in the definition. Namely such holding either represents 10% or more of the capital or of the voting rights or, if it represents less, it makes it possible to exercise a significant influence over the management.
The overall objective of the Q&A tool is to ensure consistent and effective application of the new regulatory framework across the Single Market. Institutions, supervisors, and other stakeholders can use the Single Rulebook Q&A tool for submitting questions on Capital Requirements Directive IV (CRD IV), CRR, and the related technical standards that have been developed by EBA and adopted by EC.
