On 28 May 2014, the European Banking Authority (“EBA”) published a list of capital instruments that national regulators have classified as Common Equity  Tier 1. The list was compiled on the basis of information received by the EBA as at 28 June 2013. The list will be updated regularly. The instruments listed have been deemed compliant with European requirements by national regulators. In the future, the EBA will also monitor and assess compliance of such instruments with the eligibility criteria set out in the Capital Requirements Regulation.
