On December 11, 2015, the EBA published a consultation paper on draft Guidelines for the collection of information for the Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process and the Internal Liquidity Adequacy Assessment Process under the CRD. The consultation forms part of the Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process and follows on from the criteria  and methodologies specified in the EBA Guidelines on common procedures and methodologies for SREP. The Guidelines aim to facilitate the assessment of ICAAP and ILAAP as well as to create a consistent approach to the ICAAP and ILAAP frameworks and to the assessment of reliability of the own capital and liquidity estimates of financial institutions. The draft Guidelines set out, amongst other things, the general criteria for national regulators for the collection of ICAAP and ILAAP information from institutions and will be finalized following the completion of the consultation. The Guidelines are expected to apply from June 30, 2016. Comments are due by March 11, 2016.
