ESAs publish amended technical standards on the mapping of ECAIs


Date: 02 January 2018

On 7 December 2017, the Joint Committee of the three European Supervisory Authorities (EBA, EIOPA and ESMA - ESAs) published two amended Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) on the mapping of credit assessments of External Credit Assessment Institutions (ECAIs) for credit risk. The amendments reflect the recognition of five new credit rating agencies (CRAs) and the deregistration of one CRA. The ITS are part of the EU Single Rulebook for banking and insurance aimed at creating a safe and sound regulatory framework consistently applicable across the European Union (EU).


The ESAs also published individual mapping reports illustrating how the methodology was applied to produce the five additional mappings under the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) mandate.
