Draft ECB Regulation on the materiality threshold for credit obligations past due

The ECB Regulation on the materiality threshold for credit obligations past due will set out a single materiality threshold for all significant institutions in Member States participating in the Single Supervisory Mechanism, defined for both retail and non-retail exposures, irrespective of the method used for the calculation of capital requirements.

The materiality threshold will comprise an absolute component, expressed as a specific maximum amount for the sum of all amounts past due owed by an obligor, and a relative component, expressed as a percentage, reflecting the amount of the credit obligation past due in relation to the total amount of all on-balance-sheet exposures to that obligor.

The materiality threshold will increase the comparability of capital requirements among banks.

Deadline for submitting comments: midnight CET on 17 August 2018.

Only comments received before this deadline will be considered.
