The Council has agreed to extend the current Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) exemption for commodity dealers from the large exposure and own funds requirements. The exemption had been due to expire at the end of 2017, and the Council will table legislation to extend it until 31 December 2020. EP’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) and the Member States all support the extension. (Source: Council agrees commodity dealer exemption extension)
