EBA publishes revised final draft technical standards and Guidelines on methodology and disclosure for G-SIIs

Default: Change to:

The need for this revision was prompted by the new data template and some minor changes introduced by the BCBS in January 2015 for the identification of G-SIBs.

The list of EU global systemically important banks (G-SIBs) identified by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and the global systemically important institutions (G-SIIs) identified by Member States' authorities are identical. In January 2016, the BCBS published a new data template with minor revisions for the year 2016 identification exercise, based on end-2015 business year data.

As a consequence, the Commission's Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1222/2014 on the identification methodology and the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1030/2014 on disclosure, which contained a data template, have been updated. For practical reasons, the full data template with the detailed specification of the indicator values have now been incorporated in the revised Guidelines.

The revised Guidelines stipulate that not only G-SIIs, but also other large institutions with an overall exposure of more than EUR 200 billion Euro and which are potentially systemically relevant, will be subject to the same disclosure requirement as the G-SIIs. The European Banking Authority (EBA) will act as a central data hub in this disclosure process, thus providing a platform to aggregate data across the whole EU.
