The European Banking Authority (EBA) has launched a second impact assessment of IFRS 9 'Financial Instruments' on a sample of approximately 50 institutions across the European Union.

The second assessment builds on the on the results of the first exercise published on 10 November 2016. As announced, the EBA expects that institutions will be able to provide more detailed and accurate insights into their implementation of IFRS 9 as the information provided by the respondents in the first exercise reflected the early stage of implementation. The new exercise builds on the objectives of the first impact assessment, namely the estimated impact of IFRS 9 on regulatory own funds, the interaction between IFRS 9 and other prudential requirements, and the implementation issues relating to IFRS 9.
