  • EBA: Guidelines on DGS payment commitments/Guidelines on methods for calculating contributions to DGS

    29/05/2015
    EBA has published final guidelines on contributions to deposit guarantee schemes and on payment commitments. EBA notes that, unless payment... commitments are fully reflected on balance sheets and P&L accounts, supervisory authorities should assess risks to which the capital and liquidity positions of a credit institution would be exposed should the deposit guarantee scheme call this institution to pay its commitment in cash – if the latter, supervisory authorities should seek to mitigate that risk by requiring additional capital or liquidity requirements. Deposit guarantee schemes and designated authorities should implement the guidelines by 31 December 2015.
