The EBA has announced the launch of a data collection relating to its proposals for a revised prudential framework for investment firms and the application of proportionality in the area of remuneration. The EBA is required to collect the data to support the calibration of the new prudential regime for investment firms under CRD IV and also in relation to the European Commission's April 2016 request for further data to allow the Commission to assess the EBA's recommendations on application of principle of proportionality to CRD IV remuneration provisions. Firms are requested to respond by 7 October 2016.
