The Board of Supervisors of the European Banking Authority (EBA) has decided not to carry out an EU-wide stress test in 2015 and to start preparing for the next exercise in 2016. Instead of a stress test, in 2015, the EBA will be running a transparency exercise in line with the one conducted in 2013, which will provide detailed data on EU banks’ balance sheets and portfolios. The EBA’s decision has been communicated to the European Parliament, the Council of the EU and the European Commission.
