The European Banking Authority (EBA) has issued a consultation paper on draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) on the conditions that competent authorities have to take into account when tightening capital requirements for mortgage exposures. The draft RTS illustrate the conditions, as well as financial stability considerations, that are intended to ensure a harmonised approach in setting higher risk weights and higher minimum loss given default values. The deadline for comments on the consultation paper is 6 October 2015.
