On 23 July 2019, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published its International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) 9 roadmap providing a comprehensive overview of planned monitoring activities on IFRS 9 implementation. The EBA has also launched an IFRS 9 benchmarking exercise on a sample of institutions aimed at analysing the different modelling practices followed by institutions and how IFRS 9 implementation impacts the amount of expected credit losses in terms of own funds and regulatory ratios.

In the roadmap, the EBA clarifies its intention to continue monitoring and promoting a consistent application of IFRS 9 as well as working on the interaction with prudential requirements. The roadmap includes the different phases of this work from qualitative and quantitative perspectives which will take place in the coming months and years.
