EBA launched the 2018 EU-wide stress test and released the macroeconomic scenarios. The adverse scenario implies a deviation of EU GDP from its baseline level by 8.3% in 2020, resulting in the most severe scenario to date. EBA expects to publish the results of the exercise by November 02, 2018.
The 2018 stress test methodology of EBA was published in November 2017 and is to be applied to these scenarios released. The stress test is designed to provide supervisors, banks, and other market participants with a common analytical framework to consistently compare and assess the resilience of EU banks to economic shocks. For the first time, this stress test incorporates IFRS 9 accounting standards. No pass-fail threshold has been included, as the results of the exercise are designed to serve as an input to the Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP).
