  4. (4)

    General credit exposures to other items as referred to in point (q) of Article 112 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 shall be allocated to the United Kingdom if the institution cannot identify their obligor.

    The following general credit exposures may be allocated to the United Kingdom:

    1. (a)

      exposures to CIUs as referred to in point (o) of Article 112 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, where the institution cannot identify the location of the obligor or obligors of the underlying exposures based on information existing internally or available externally without disproportionate effort;

    2. (b)

      foreign exposures, whose aggregate does not exceed 2 % of the aggregate of the general credit, trading book and securitisation exposures of that institution.

  6. (6)

    Institutions shall calculate the percentage referred to in point (b) of paragraph 5, both on an annual and on an ad hoc basis. An ad hoc calculation is required when an event that affects the financial or economic situation of the institution occurs.
