On 27 June 2014, the EBA launched a public consultation on proposed draft RTS on the key information firms must disclose on their compliance with the requirement for a countercyclical capital buffer (“CyB”). The consultation proposes two disclosure templates that aim to harmonize the publicly available information available on a firm-specific CyB and the geographical location of the exposures determining that buffer. Responses to the consultation are due by 27 September 2014.

The consultation paper is available at: http://www.eba.europa.eu/documents/10180/741727/EBA-CP-2014- 11+%28CP+on+RTS+on+CBB+Disclosure+Art+440+CRR%29.pdf.
