COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/453

of 15 March 2021

laying down implementing technical standards for the application of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to the specific reporting requirements for market risk

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of 26 June 2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms and amending Regulation (EU) No 648/2012 (1), and in particular Article 430b(6) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In 2019, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) published the revised ‘Minimum capital requirements for market risk’, which addressed the weaknesses in the prudential treatment of banks’ trading book activities and introduced, amongst others, the requirement for a risk-sensitive standardised approach for market risk, which is designed and calibrated to serve as a credible fall-back to the internal models approach.

(2)

Regulation (EU) 2019/876 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) amended Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 to introduce into the prudential framework of the Union the requirement for institutions to report information on the own funds requirements under that alternative, risk-sensitive standardised approach.

(3)

Uniform reporting requirements regarding the own funds under that alternative standardised approach in relation to the reporting to competent authorities in accordance with Article 430b of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and in accordance with the delegated act referred to in Article 461a of that Regulation should be laid down.

(4)

According to Article 430b(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, the specific reporting requirements for market risk set out in that Article should apply as of the date of application of the delegated act referred to in Article 461a of that Regulation. It is therefore appropriate that the date of application of this Regulation is streamlined with the date of application of that delegated act.

(5)

This Regulation is based on the draft implementing technical standards submitted to the Commission by the European Banking Authority (EBA).

(6)

The EBA has conducted open public consultations on the draft implementing technical standards on which this Regulation is based, analysed the potential related costs and benefits and requested the advice of the Banking Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 37 of Regulation (EU) No 1093/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:


(1)  OJ L, 176, 27.6.2013, p. 1.

(3)  Regulation (EU) No 1093/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 November 2010 establishing a European Supervisory Authority (European Banking Authority), amending Decision No 716/2009/EC and repealing Commission Decision 2009/78/EC (OJ L 331, 15.12.2010, p. 12).
