On February 14, 2015, implementing technical standards for currencies in which there is an extremely narrow definition of central bank eligibility were published in the Official Journal of the European Union. CRR requires firms to report assets as liquid assets where they meet certain conditions, one of which is that the assets are eligible collateral for standard liquidity operations of a central bank in a Member State or a third country. The condition is waived for liquid assets held to meet liquidity outflows in a currency in which there is an extremely narrow definition of central bank eligibility. The ITS establish that the Bulgarian Lev is the only such currency to date.
