Article 2 Assigning Specific Credit Risk Adjustments for a group of exposures to the exposures within the group

  1. (1)

    Where a Specific Credit Risk Adjustment reflects losses related to the credit risk of a group of exposures, institutions shall assign that Specific Credit Risk Adjustment to all single exposures of that group proportionally to the risk-weighted exposure amounts. For that purpose, the exposure values shall be determined without taking into account any Specific Credit Risk Adjustments.

  2. (2)

    For the treatment of expected loss amounts referred to in Article 159 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 for a group of non-defaulted exposures, institutions shall not be required to assign a Specific Credit Risk Adjustment to the single exposures of the group.

  3. (3)

    Where a Specific Credit Risk Adjustment relates to a group of exposures the credit risk own funds requirements of which are calculated partially under the Standardised Approach and partially under the Internal Ratings Based Approach, the institution shall assign that Specific Credit Risk Adjustment to the group of exposures covered by each of the Approaches proportionally to the risk weighted exposure amounts of the group before applying the actions referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2. For that purpose, the exposure values shall be determined without taking into account any Specific Credit Risk Adjustments.

  4. (4)

    When assigning the Specific Credit Risk Adjustments to exposures, institutions shall ensure that the same portion is not assigned twice to different exposures.
