EBA Launched a Consultation to Amend Standards on Benchmarking of Internal Models

Dec 13, 2019

The European Banking Authority (EBA) launched a consultation to amend the Commission’s Implementing Regulation on benchmarking of internal models to adjust the benchmarking portfolios and reporting requirements in view of the benchmarking exercise it will carry out in 2021.

On the credit risk side, the amended standards will allow to complement the analysis of credit risk models through the introduction of IFRS 9 templates and the collection of risk-weighted exposure value (RWA) calculated under the Standardised Approach (SA) and hypothetical RWA calculated with empirical default rates.

On the market risk side, the framework remains stable, with the consultation restricted to clarifications on the setting of reference dates and instruments/portfolios definitions.

The consultation runs until 13 February 2020.
