On June 5, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published final draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) and implementing technical standards (ITS) relating to global systemically important institutions (G-SIIs).

The RTS and ITS relate to the requirements in the CRD IV Directive (2013/36/EU) and the Capital Requirements Regulation (Regulation 575/2013) (CRR) concerning G-SIIs. Broadly, CRD IV requires that institutions designated as G-SIIs meet higher capital standards to reflect the potential impact their failure could have on the global financial system. Designation of GSIIs is expected to take place in January 2015, with the enhanced capital requirements becoming mandatory the following year. RTS. ITS.
