The EBA issued an opinion to the Commission dissenting to its proposed amendment to remove the maturity ladder from the EBA final draft Implementing Technical Standard (ITS) on additional liquidity monitoring metrics. The Commission considers that the maturity ladder needs to be adapted to the detailed definitions of liquid assets set by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/61 (Delegated Act on the LCR). For this reason, the Commission suggests removing the maturity ladder from the ITS also because, in its view, it would avoid unnecessary regulatory burden and the duplication of implementation costs for the industry. The EBA deems it essential to keep the maturity ladder in the ITS considering the relevance of the metric in the liquidity risk assessment by supervisors and the need to have a harmonised metric for this purpose.
