The EBA Single Rulebook question and answer (Q&A) tool updates for this month include answers to 32 questions. The answers cover queries on supervisory reporting and own funds requirements under the Capital Requirements Directive and Regulation. The update also answers queries on various aspects of the second Payment Services Directive (PSD2), including fraud reporting.
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 certain EU regulations and directives. These regulations and directives include the revised Capital Requirements Directive 5 (CRD 5), Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) 2, the revised Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD 2), the Securitization Regulation, Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive (DGSD), the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD), PSD 2, Wire Transfer Regulation (WTR), and Anti-Money-Laundering (AML) Directive among others, and the related technical standards that EBA has developed and adopted.
