What you need to know about the Capital Requirements Regulation 2013.

The Capital Requirements Regulation 2013 imposes rules on European banks designed to make them sounder and less liable to become insolvent. These rules, drawn up in the wake of the financial crisis, cover capital, liquidity and the amount of leverage allowed for banks. They cover also counter-party credit risk, thought to be an area of weakness exposed by the crisis. As a regulation, rather than a European directive, it took effect immediately across the EU and did not have to be translated into national law, as would have been the case with a directive.
