The European Banking Authority (EBA) published its third annual Report on the convergence of supervisory practices across the EU. The Report reviews consistency in the application of the Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP) in order to promote comparable supervisory approaches and

consistency in supervisory outcomes across the single market. This is necessary for a level playing field, effective supervision of cross border groups, and to identify supervisory best practices.  In the Report, the EBA notes that good progress has been made by competent authorities in the implementation of the SREP Guidelines as well as in taking forward recommendations and observations made by the EBA during the 2016 bilateral convergence visits. A significant degree of convergence across the single market has already been achieved through the application of the EBA's SREP guidelines. The Report highlights, however, a number of remaining challenges in converging capital adequacy assessments and determining institution-specific additional own funds requirements (P2R). 

In particular, the Report observes different approaches in the use of the outcomes for banks' own internal capital adequacy assessment process (ICAAP), disparity of risk taxonomies, and differences in the clarity of the risk-by-risk determination of P2R, as well as the use of P2R for macroprudential purposes. In turn, this leads to differences in the articulation and communication of P2R to supervised institutions. Finally, the Report notes the widespread use of Pillar 2 Guidance (P2G), but limited experience in this area makes the analysis of the first wave of application of P2G difficult.


Further progress on convergence will be supported by ongoing policy work such as adjustments to the SREP framework as well as upcoming revisions to the Pillar 2 framework in the CRR/CRD. The EBA will also continue to promote supervisory convergence through active monitoring and assessment of supervisory practices, which help competent authorities in the effective implementation of agreed policy products, as well as to further expand its supervisory training offering.
