Article 2 Materiality threshold for exposures other than retail exposures

  1. (1)

    A competent authority shall set for all institutions in its jurisdiction a single materiality threshold for exposures other than retail exposures.

  2. (2)

    The materiality threshold referred to in paragraph 1 shall be set in accordance with the conditions laid down in Article 1(2) with the only difference that the absolute component of that materiality threshold shall not exceed 500 EUR or the equivalent of that amount in the relevant national currency.

  3. (3)

    When setting the materiality threshold in accordance with this Article, the competent authority shall take into account the risk characteristics of exposures other than retail exposures.

  4. (4)

    When setting the materiality threshold in accordance with this Article, the competent authority shall assume that the obligor is defaulted when both the limit expressed as the absolute component of the materiality threshold and the limit expressed as the relative component of that threshold are exceeded either for 90 consecutive days or for 180 consecutive days, where the exposures included in the calculation of the credit obligation past due are exposures to a public sector entity and the 90 days have been replaced by 180 days in accordance with Article 178(1)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 for those exposures.
