This note provides an overview of the European Commission's proposed revisions to the Capital Requirements Regulation (Regulation 575/2013) (CRR) and the CRD IV Directive (2013/36/EU).

The note considers the reforms set out in the proposed Regulation amending the CRR (CRR II Regulation) and the proposed Directive amending the CRD IV Directive (CRD V Directive) adopted by the Commission in November 2016. These include the introduction of Basel III measures into EU law (such as the leverage ratio and the net stable funding ratio (NSFR)), the implementation of the total loss absorbing capacity (TLAC) standard and revisions intended to improve lending to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and to infrastructure.
