EBA Guidelines on legislative and non-legislative moratoria on loan repayments applied in the light of the COVID-19 crisis
On 2 April 2020, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published Guidelines on legislative and non-legislative moratoria on loan repayments applied in the light of the COVID-19 crisis.
On 25 March 2020, the EBA issued a release on the application of the prudential framework and consumer protection in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The statements presented in the release concern e.g. the implications of moratoria on the application of the concepts of default and forbearance as used in the prudential framework.
The Guidelines published now clarify the criteria for moratoria referred to in the statements of 25 March 2020.
The Financial Supervisory Authority will comply with the EBA Guidelines in its supervision.
