On June 29, 2016, the EBA launched a consultation proposing Guidelines on compliance with the regulatory disclosure requirements in the CRR. The EBA aims to ensure harmonized and timely implementation of the Basel III Pillar 3 requirements that were released in January 2015. The proposed Guidelines will introduce specific guidance and formats for disclosure, using tables and templates. Responses to the consultation were due by September 29, 2016. The Guidelines are set to apply for the yearend 2017 disclosures. However, the EBA recommends that Globally Systemically Important Institutions implement a limited subset of disclosures relating to risk-weighted assets and capital requirements for the year-end 2016 disclosures.
