On 22 July 2022, the European Banking Authority (EBA) issued a report in accordance with the mandate given to it under Article 507(1) of the Capital Requirements Regulation covering the use of some exemptions included in the large exposures regime. For the report, the EBA conducted an ad hoc data-collection exercise involving about 181 EU institutions on the reference date 30 June 2021. This data was complemented by COREP data. Whilst the report does not contain any policy recommendations, it does analyse banks’ use of the various exemptions from different perspectives and quantifies the impact of a potential removal of individual exemptions.
