The European Banking Authority (EBA) has published its final methodology for the 2018 EU-wide stress test. The methodology covers all relevant risk areas and also incorporates International Financial Reporting Standard 9. The EBA explains that similar to the 2016 exercise, the 2018 EU-wide stress test is primarily focussed on the assessment of the impact of risk drivers on the solvency of banks. The stress test will be formally launched in January 2018 and the results will be published by 2 November 2018.
