On 20 August 2014, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published the final templates for the 2014 EU-wide stress test, which will be used for the publication of data in the context of the EU-wide stress test in the banking sector. In its role as co-ordinator of the stress test, the EBA will be publishing up to 12,000 data points per bank across the EU.

The data to be disclosed in the EBA templates will cover banks' composition of capital, risk weighted assets, profit and loss, exposures to sovereigns, credit risk and securitisation.

In addition, for the first time, the EBA will disclose a fully loaded CRR/CRD4 Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio for each bank. The disclosure will be based on the outcome of the stress test from end 2013 to end 2016.
