COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2018/634

of 24 April 2018

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1799 as regards the mapping tables specifying the correspondence between the credit risk assessments of external credit assessment institutions and the credit quality steps set out in Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms (1), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 136(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1799 (2) specifies in its Annex III, the correspondence of the relevant credit assessments issued by an external credit assessment institution (‘ECAI’) to the credit quality steps set out in Section 2 of Chapter 2 of Title II of Part Three of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 (mapping).

(2)

Since the adoption of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1799 additional credit rating agencies have been registered or certified in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1060/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3). Furthermore, one of the ECAIs for which Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1799 provided a mapping has been deregistered. Given that Article 136(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 requires the specification of mappings for all ECAIs, it is necessary to amend Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1799 to provide mappings for the newly registered or certified ECAIs, and to remove the mapping for the deregistered ECAI.

(3)

This Regulation is based on the draft implementing technical standards submitted by the European Banking Authority, the European Securities and Markets Authority and the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority jointly (the ‘European Supervisory Authorities’) to the Commission.

(4)

The European Supervisory Authorities have conducted open public consultations on the draft implementing technical standards on which this Regulation is based, analysed the potential related costs and benefits and requested the opinion of the Banking Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 37 of Regulation (EU) No 1093/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4), the Securities and Markets Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 37 of Regulation (EU) No 1095/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council (5), and the Insurance and Reinsurance Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 37 of Regulation (EU) No 1094/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council (6).

(5)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1799 should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Amendment to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1799

Annex III to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1799 is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

Entry into force

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 24 April 2018.

For the Commission

The President

Jean-Claude JUNCKER
