The EBA Single Rulebook question and answer (Q&A) tool updates for this month include answers to five questions. Two of the answers cover queries on credit risk under the revised Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR2) while the remaining answers address questions on the Anti-Money-Laundering (AML) Directive.
The overall objective of the Q&A tool is to ensure consistent and effective application of regulatory framework across the Single Market. Institutions, supervisors, and other stakeholders can use the Single Rulebook Q&A tool to submit questions on certain EU regulations and directives. These regulations and directives include the revised Capital Requirements Directive 5 (CRD5), CRR 2, the revised Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD2), the Securitization Regulation, the Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive (DGSD), the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD), the second Payment Services Directive (PSD 2), the Wire Transfer Regulation (WTR), and the AML Directive, along with any related technical standards that EBA has developed and adopted.
