MEDIA ALERT: Wolters Kluwer expert comments on European Parliament vote to pass amendment implementing Basel III reforms

The European financial landscape saw a milestone event this week, as the EU Parliament passed the Amendment to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, implementing the Basel III finalization within Europe.

This monumental step forward comes with the adoption of the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR3) amendments, which are part of a broader legislative package, including amendments to Directive 2013/36/EU, known as the Capital Requirements Directive or CRD.

Jeroen Van Doorsselaere, Vice President of Global Product & Platform Management, Wolters Kluwer FRR, said: “The adoption of the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR3) amendments represents a landmark change for the banking industry, designed to strengthen the framework for risk-based capital requirements and address ESG risks.

“This is a major overhaul of the capital requirements framework, impacting various aspects, including credit risk, operational risk, market risk, and the capital floor. Whereas other significant jurisdictions, including the U.S., the U.K. and Hong Kong, have deferred timelines, the EEA region is now moving ahead with the Basel III reforms without delay.

“The clock is now ticking for financial institutions in the EEA as the CRR3 regulation is applicable from January 1, 2025. It will be essential that banks and financial institutions act swiftly and harness transformative technologies to ensure compliance and readiness.”
