On 21 September 2021, there was published a letter that the European Commission had sent to the European Banking Authority (EBA) asking for support in the preparation of the review of the macro-prudential framework for banking, as mandated by Article 513 of the Capital Requirements Regulation. As part of the review, the Commission is seeking advice on four broad themes, namely: (i) the overall design and functioning of the buffer framework; (ii) missing or obsolete instruments; (iii) internal market considerations; and (iv) global risks, including climate change. The Commission asks the EBA to deliver its advice by 31 March 2022. The Commission has also published its call for advice.
