The Joint Committee of the European Supervisory Authorities in 2016 will continue to prioritise consumer protection – in particular the work on Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products (PRIIPs), and cross-sectoral risk analysis. Moreover, it will proceed with the joint regulatory work already underway in areas such as anti-money laundering, financial conglomerates and securitisation while being prepared to address any new developments in the European regulatory field if necessary.
30/10/2014 JC/2014/01 add Addendum to Joint CP on draft ITS on the mapping of ECAIs Consultation Paper PDF
157.22 KB
The Joint Committee of the three European Supervisory Authorities (EBA, ESMA and EIOPA - ESAs) published today an addendum to the joint consultation on the mapping of the credit assessments to risk weights of External Credit Assessment Institutions (ECAIs). The addendum provides further details on the application of the rules proposed in the draft Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) in relation to particular ECAIs and is to be considered as an extension of the consultation process. The consultation period will be reopened until 30 November 2014 in order to collect additional comments. In line with the specifications included in the joint Consultation Paper published in February 2014, this addendum contains the individual mapping tables of all relevant ECAIs. The proposed mappings establish the level of capital that financial institutions should hold in order to ensure the safety and soundness of the EU financial system. These draft mappings are based on the amount of objective information available for each ECAI regarding the performance of its credit ratings. Therefore, the draft mappings mainly reflect the historical ability of ECAIs to anticipate negative credit events. For those cases where only a small number of credit ratings were available, the draft mappings have to a large extent relied on alternative information; whereas, when no relevant information was found, a certain degree of prudence has been applied. Furthermore, the addendum contains some additional aspects resulting from the cost-benefit/impact assessment analysis. The analysis shows that the proposals for the largest ECAIs are not expected to have a significant impact on financial institutions in terms of capital requirements. Only in very specific cases the average capital requirement associated with a particular ECAI might increase by up to 10%. In the case of ECAIs that currently have no mapping established, the impact is expected to reflect the true risk profile of the rated entities. In addition, the EBA also published the individual draft mapping reports that illustrate how the rules proposed in the draft ITS were applied. The draft mappings will be reviewed in light of any comments received during the consultation process. Consultation process The consultation deadline is 30 November 2014 and responses can be submitted here. All contributions received will be published following the close of the consultation, unless requested otherwise. Draft Mapping Reports

275.66 KB
ESMA launched a Call for Evidence on Empty Voting in September 2011 to analyse the potential issues and concerns raised by the practice of empty voting and to examine whether there was a possible need for further action. An analysis of the responses received to the consultation has led ESMA to conclude that there is insufficient evidence to justify any regulatory action at the European level at present.
20/03/2015 2015/558 Call for evidence on private and bilateral SFIs Consultation Paper PDF
118.4 KB
This call for evidence should be read by all those involved in the EU securitisation markets. It is particularly targeted at the following market participants and the groups and trade associations who represent them: •    Issuers, originators and sponsors of Structured Finance Instruments (SFIs);•    Investors acting in the securitisation markets;•    Market intermediaries other than the issuers, originators and sponsors of SFIs.Responses are most helpful to ESMA when they clearly indicate which question is being answered and provide evidence in support of the response, such as concrete examples of practices experienced, data or costs estimates. Should respondents feel that the distinction provided for by the two proposed categories (issuers vs. investors) is not suitable to their particular situation, ESMA welcomes these contributions in alternative format. ESMA will consider all responses that have been received by 20 May 2015. All contributions should be submitted online at www.esma.europa.eu under the heading ‘Your input - Consultations’.
