EP’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) has published a draft report on the proposed amendments to the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) to extend certain exposures and own funds exemptions for commodity dealers. The extensions would otherwise expire at the end of 2017, and affected firms would become subject to full requirements. ECON supports further extensions, for an appropriate period, so that commodity dealers do not become subject to the full requirements without a conscious decision that it is appropriate for them and so as not to deprive them of a stable regulatory framework.
