On September 19, 2015, two delegated regulations on Regulatory Technical Standards under the Capital Requirements Regulation were published in the Official Journal of the European Union:

  1. The delegated regulation for the disclosure of information for the compliance of institutions with the requirement for a countercyclical capital buffer which sets out the specifications for the disclosures required by firms for compliance with their requirements for a countercyclical capital buffer; and
  2. The delegated regulation for the transitional treatment of equity exposures under the Internal Ratings-Based approach which states that national regulators may grant certain firms with exemptions from the IRB treatment where the categories of the firm's equity exposures were already benefiting from an exemption from the IRB treatment on December 31, 2013.

Both delegated regulations enter into force on October 9, 2015.
