Covid-19: EBA updates its work programme for 2020

The EBA has published its updated annual work programme for 2020 to reflect all the changes to its activities in light of Covid-19. 

The EBA says the updated work programme aims to alleviate the burden on banks and to limit interaction with the industry. For this reason, the EBA only launched new consultations which it considered critical, postponed the publication of final technical standards depending on their degree of finalisation and expected time of implementation, and put on hold data collections normally used for ad-hoc analyses.

For ease of comparison, all postponed activities have been highlighted in the updated work programme.
