On November 12, 2015, the EBA published a consultation paper including draft Guidelines on the treatment of Credit Valuation Adjustment risk further to the Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process under the CRR. The draft Guidelines implement the recommendations of the EBA’s report on CVAs published in February 2015 and aim to form a common and proportionate approach to determine: (i) the materiality of CVA risk for an institution; (ii) material CVA risk under the SREP; and (iii) adequate additional own fund requirements where risks aren’t sufficiently covered. The EBA has also published a data collection exercise for a Quantitative Impact Study to ensure the appropriate calibration of threshold values. The Guidelines will be finalized once the consultation process and QIS are complete. National regulators will then have two months from the date of publication of the translated versions of the guidelines on the EBA website to report whether or not they comply with the Guidelines. Comments on the consultation are due by February 12, 2016. It is expected that the data collection exercise will be completed by January 28, 2016.
