    EC Updates List of Appropriately Diversified Stock Indices Under CRR

    January 30, 2020

    EC published the Implementing Regulation 2020/125, which amends Regulation 945/2014 and lays down the implementing technical standards for relevant appropriately diversified indices in accordance with the Capital Requirements Regulation or CRR (575/2013). The amendment updates the list of stock indices meeting the requirements of Article 344 of CRR. Regulation (EU) 2020/125 shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

    To ensure that the stock indices listed in the Annex to Regulation (EU) No 945/2014 continue to meet the conditions for their specific risk to be ignored, the relevant indices have been reassessed in light of the latest available data, which relative to 2018. In light of that reassessment, it is necessary to update the list of relevant appropriately diversified indices. Regulation 2020/125 is based on the draft implementing technical standards submitted by EBA to EC. The Annex to Regulation (EU) No 945/2014 has been replaced by the text in the Annex to Regulation (EU) 2020/125. The Annex to Regulation 2020/125 provides the list of stock indices meeting the requirements under Article 344 of CRR.
