EBA published answers to two questions under the Single Rulebook question and answer (Q&A) updates for this week. One update relates to the deferral of variable remuneration in instruments. The second update is on the calculation of a three-year indicator at the consolidated level where figures for individual entities are negative, in the context of the operational risk requirements.
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), Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR), and the related technical standards developed by EBA and adopted by EC.
