Proposal for a

REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

on amending Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 as regards exposures in the form of covered bonds

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 114 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

After transmission of the draft legislative act to the national parliaments,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Central Bank(4),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee(5),

Having regard to the opinion of the Committee of the Regions(6),

Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure,

Whereas:

(1)  Article 129 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council(7) grants, under certain conditions, preferential treatment to covered bonds. Directive (EU) 20xx/xx [OP: Please insert reference to Directive (EU) 20xx/xx on the issue of covered bonds and covered bond public supervision and amending Directive 2009/65/EU and Directive 2014/59/EU] specifies the core elements of covered bonds and provides for a common definition of covered bonds.

(2)  On 20 December 2013 the Commission issued a call for advice to the European Banking Authority (EBA) regarding the appropriateness of the risk weights set out in Article 129 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. According to EBA's opinion,(8) the preferential risk weight treatment laid down in Article 129 of that Regulation is, in principle, an appropriate prudential treatment. However, EBA recommended that further consideration be given to the opportunity of complementing the eligibility requirements as set out by Article 129 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 to cover, at a minimum, the areas of liquidity risk mitigation, over-collateralisation, the role of the competent authority, and the further elaboration of existing requirements on disclosure to investors(9).

(3)  In the light of EBA's opinion, it is appropriate to amend Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 by adding additional requirements for covered bonds, thereby strengthening the quality of covered bonds eligible for favourable capital treatment as provided for in Article 129 of that Regulation.

(4)  Pursuant to the third subparagraph of Article 129(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, competent authorities may partially waive the application of the requirement for exposures to qualify for credit quality step 1, laid down in point (c) of the first subparagraph of Article 129(1), and allow an exposure which qualifies for credit quality step 2 up to a maximum of 10% of the total exposure of the nominal amount of outstanding covered bonds of the issuing institution. Such a partial waiver however applies only after prior consultation with EBA and only provided that significant potential concentration problems in the Member States concerned can be documented as a result of the application of the credit quality step 1 requirement. As the requirements for exposures to qualify for credit quality step 1 as made available by External Credit Assessment Institutions have become increasingly difficult to comply with in most Member States both within and outside the euro zone, the application of that waiver was considered necessary by those Member States which host the largest covered bonds markets. To simplify the use of exposures to credit institutions as collateral for covered bonds and in order to address that difficulty, it is necessary to amend Article 129(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. Instead of a possibility for the competent authorities to waive the requirements, it is appropriate to establish a rule allowing exposures to credit institutions which qualify for credit quality step 2 up to a maximum of 10% of the total exposure of the nominal amount of outstanding covered bonds of the issuing institution without the need to consult EBA.

(5)  In accordance with points (d)(ii) and (f)(ii) of the first subparagraph of Article 129(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, loans secured by senior units issued by French Fonds Communs de Titrisation or equivalent securitisation entities securitising residential or commercial property exposures are eligible assets which can be used as collateral for covered bonds up to a maximum of 10 % of the nominal amount of the outstanding issue of covered bonds (the '10 % threshold'). However, Article 496 of that Regulation enables competent authorities to waive the 10% threshold. Lastly, Article 503(4) of the same Regulation requires the Commission to review the appropriateness of the derogation enabling competent authorities to waive the 10 % threshold. On 22 December 2013, the Commission requested EBA to provide an opinion in that regard. On 1 July 2014, EBA stated that the use of senior units issued by French Fonds Communs de Titrisation or equivalent securitisation entities securitising residential or commercial property exposures as collateral would cause prudential concerns due to the double layer structure of a covered bond programme backed by securitisation units and thereby would lead to insufficient transparency regarding the credit quality of the cover pool. Consequently, EBA recommended that the derogation to the 10 % threshold for senior securitisation units currently laid down in Article 496 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 be removed after 31 December 2017(10).

(6)  Only a limited number of national covered bond frameworks allow the inclusion of residential or commercial mortgage-backed securities. The use of such structures is decreasing and is considered to add unnecessary complexity to the covered bond programmes. It is thus appropriate to eliminate the use of such structures as eligible assets altogether. Therefore points (d)(ii) and (f)(ii) of the first subparagraph of Article 129(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, as well as Article 496 of that Regulation should be deleted.

(7)  Intragroup pooled covered bond structures which comply with Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, have also been used as eligible collateral in accordance with points (d)(ii) and (f)(ii) of the first subparagraph of Article 129(1) of that Regulation. Intragroup pooled covered bond structures do not pose additional risks from a prudential perspective because they are not raising the same complexity issues as the use of loans secured by senior units issued by French Fonds Communs de Titrisation or equivalent securitisation entities securitising residential or commercial property exposures. According to EBA, collateralisation of covered bonds by pooled covered bond structures should be allowed without limits related to the amount of outstanding covered bonds of the issuing credit institution(11). Accordingly, point (c) of the first subparagraph of Article 129(1) should be amended to remove the requirement to apply the limit of 15 % or 10 % in relation to exposures to credit institutions in intragroup pooled covered bond structures. Those intragroup pooled covered bond structures are regulated by Article 9 of Directive (EU) 20../…. [OP: Please insert reference to Directive (EU) on the issue of covered bonds and covered bond public supervision and amending Directive 2009/65/EC and Directive 2014/59/EU].

(8)  Article 129(3) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 requires that the valuation principles for immovable property collateralising covered bonds, set out in Article 229(1) of that Regulation, be applied to covered bonds in order for those bonds to meet the requirements for preferential treatment. The requirements on eligibility of assets serving as collateral for covered bonds relate to the general quality features ensuring the robustness of the cover pool and should therefore be subject to Directive (EU) 20../… [OP: Please insert reference to Directive (EU) on the issue of covered bonds and covered bond public supervision and amending Directive 2009/65/EC and Directive 2014/59/EU]. Accordingly, the provisions on valuation methodology should also be subject to that Directive. The regulatory technical standards mandated by Article 124(4)(a) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 should therefore not apply in respect of the eligibility criteria for covered bonds as set out in Article 129 of that Regulation. It is therefore necessary to amend Article 129(3) of that Regulation to that effect.

(9)  Limits for Loan-To-Value ('LTV') are a necessary part of ensuring the credit quality of the covered bonds. Article 129(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 establishes the LTV limits for mortgage and ship assets but does not specify how those limits are to be applied which may lead to uncertainty. The LTV limits should be applied as soft coverage limits, meaning that while there are no limits to the size of an underlying loan, such a loan can only act as collateral within the LTV limits imposed on the assets. The LTV limits determine the percentage portion of the loan that contributes to the requirement of coverage of the liabilities. It is therefore appropriate to specify that the LTV limits determine the portion of the loan contributing to the coverage of the covered bond.

(10)  To ensure greater clarity, it should also be specified that the LTV limits are applicable throughout the entire maturity of the loan. The actual LTV should not change but remain at the limit of 80% of the value of the property for residential loans, and at the limit of 60% of the value of the property for commercial loans and ships.

(11)  In order to further enhance the quality of the covered bonds that receive the preferential capital treatment as provided for in Article 129 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, that preferential treatment should be subject to a minimum level of overcollateralisation, meaning a level of collateral exceeding the coverage requirements as referred to in Article 15 of Directive (EU) 20../… [OP: Please insert reference to Directive (EU) on the issue of covered bonds and covered bond public supervision and amending Directive 2009/65/EC and Directive 2014/59/EU]. Member States can decide to apply a higher minimum level of overcollateralisation to covered bonds issued by credit institutions located in their territory, without preventing other covered bonds with a lower minimum level of overcollateralisation that comply with this Regulation from benefitting from its provisions. Such a requirement serves the purpose of mitigating the most relevant risks arising in case of the issuer’s insolvency or resolution.

(12)  One of the requirements laid down in Article 129(7) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 is that the credit institution investing in covered bonds receives certain information on the covered bonds on at least a semi-annual basis. Transparency requirements are an indispensable part of covered bonds ensuring a uniform disclosure level and allowing investors to perform the necessary risk assessment, enhancing comparability, transparency and market stability. Therefore, it is appropriate to ensure that transparency requirements apply to all covered bonds which can be achieved by laying down those requirements in Directive (EU) 20../… [OP: Please insert reference to Directive (EU) on the issue of covered bonds and covered bond public supervision and amending Directive 2009/65/EC and Directive 2014/59/EU] as common structural feature of covered bonds. Accordingly, Article 129(7) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 should be deleted.

(13)  Covered bonds are long term funding instruments and therefore issued with a scheduled maturity of several years. It is therefore necessary to ensure that covered bonds issued before 31 December 2007 or before [OP: Please insert the date of application of this Regulation] are not disrupted. In order to achieve that objective, covered bonds issued before 31 December 2007 should remain exempted from the requirements set out in Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 with respect to eligible assets, overcollateralisation and substitution assets. In addition, other covered bonds complying with Article 129 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and issued before [OP: Please insert the date of application of this Regulation] should be exempted from the requirements on overcollateralisation and substitution assets and should continue to be eligible for the preferential treatment as set out in that Regulation until their maturity.

(14)  This Regulation should be applied in conjunction with [OP: Please insert reference to Directive (EU) on the issue of covered bonds and covered bond public supervision and amending Directive 2009/65/EC and Directive 2014/59/EU]. In order to ensure the consistent application of the new framework establishing the structural features of the issue of covered bonds and the amended requirements for preferential treatment, the application of this Regulation should be deferred to coincide with the date from which Member States are to apply the provisions transposing that Directive.

(15)  Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 should therefore be amended accordingly.
