EBA has published the details of the scenario and methodology it will use for its 2011 EU-wide stress test. This year’s test will cover a range of banks covering over 60% of total EU banking assets and will create a more severe scenario than the 2010 test. The test runs from March to June. EBA is coordinating its efforts with national regulators, the European Systemic Risk Board, the European Central Bank and the Commission.
