The European Banking Authority (EBA) has launched a consultation on three Guidelines related to the information that institutions in the EU banking sector should disclose under Part Eight of the Capital Requirements Regulation (Regulation 575/2013 EU) (CRR).

These Guidelines cover how institutions should apply materiality, proprietary and confidentiality in relation to the disclosure requirements, as well as how they should assess the frequency of their disclosures.

The purpose of the Guidelines is to enhance consistency in disclosure practices across the EU and to ensure greater transparency in the EU banking sector.

The consultation runs until 13 September 2014.
