The European Banking Authority has published a Recommendation on capital preservation addressed to supervisory authorities in all EU Member States. The Recommendation aims to preserve the enhanced capital base that banks built by 30 June 2012, in response to the EBA's 2011 recapitalisation Recommendation.

National authorities, in close cooperation with the EBA, will assess banks' capital plans during the transition to the CRD/CRR full implementation. Banks will be requested to submit their capital plans and monitoring templates to their respective national authorities by 29 November 2013.
