Despite significant progress since the financial crisis of 2007-2008, the overhaul of the financial regulatory framework remains a European Commission priority. The existing Capital Requirements Directive and Regulation (the ‘CRD-IV package’) set the prudential framework for financial institutions operating in the EU. The proposed amendments to the package implement the most recent international regulatory provisions for banks (that is, higher risk-sensitivity), set by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (Basel III framework). They also address regulatory shortcomings and aim to contribute to sustainable bank financing of the economy. The Parliament’s ECON Committee has named Peter Simon (S&D, Germany) rapporteur for both dossiers.
