The European Banking Authority (EBA) has compiled this list on its own initiative to enhance harmonisation in the treatment of exposures to EU public sector entities (PSEs) using the standardised approach (SA) to capital requirements. In particular, the list includes those PSEs that are treated as regional governments, local authorities or central governments due to their reduced risk level. As a result of this treatment, exposures to the PSEs included in the list will qualify for the same risk weight as for the respective regional government, local authority or central government.
The list was compiled using the information provided by the Competent Authorities and is based on the classification used in each individual country. Hence the differences in the approaches and eligibility criteria for PSEs across countries.
