On November 27, 2015, the Regulation on implementing technical standards for closely correlated currencies as set out in the CRR was published in the Official Journal of the European Union. Closely correlated currencies are currencies that meet specific criteria set out in the CRR, which states that firms may provide lower own funds requirements against foreign exchange risk for positions in relevant closely correlated currencies. The pairs of currencies that meet such criteria are set out in the Annex to the Regulation. The list of closely correlated currencies will be updated yearly.

The Regulation is available at: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legalcontent/EN/TXT/?uri=uriserv:OJ.L_.2015.313.01.0030.01.ENG&toc=OJ:L:2015:313:TOC
