Summary: In the aftermath of the financial crises, questions have been raised as to why there were significant differences in the denominator of the calculation of risk-weighted assets (RWAs). The EBA and other international bodies have already conducted significant work on the comparability of capital requirements for the Internal Ratings-Based Approach (IRBA) and the Internal Market risk Models, leading to a greater understanding of the consistency of risk-weighted assets .European legislators have acknowledged the need to constrain the inconsistent calculation of risk-weighted assets for equivalent portfolios and the revised Capital Requirements Regulation and Directive (‘CRR’ and ‘CRD’, respectively) now include a number of mandates for the EBA to deliver technical standards, guidelines and reports aimed at reducing uncertainty and differences in the calculation of capital requirements.In this regard, article 78 of the CRD requires that, at least annually, competent authorities assess the consistency and comparability in risk-weighted assets (RWA) produced by institutions’ internal modelling approaches (except for operational risk) for which competent authorities have granted permission to be used for capital purposes.The draft implementing technical standards (ITS) specify the benchmarking portfolios as well as the templates, definitions and IT solutions that should be applied in the benchmarking exercise for market and credit risk.The draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) specify the procedures for sharing the assessments between the competent authorities and with the EBA and the standards for the assessment by competent authorities of the internal approaches applied to calculating own funds for market, IMM, CVA and credit risk.
