On May 22, 2015, the European Banking Authority published a final report on guidelines on the management of interest rate risk arising from non-trading activities also known as interest rate risk in the banking book or IRRBB. The report includes the final guidelines which apply from January 1, 2016, and are addressed to national regulators, relevant credit institutions and investment firms. The final guidelines update and repeal the guidelines published on October 3, 2006 by the Committee of European Banking Supervisors. The guidelines set out the expectations for the identification and mitigation of IRRBB risks by firms. The level of application of the guidelines should be consistent with the level of application of the supervisory review and evaluation process.
