Article 5 Updating of the materiality thresholds

Where the absolute component of the materiality threshold is set in a currency other than the euro and where, due to volatility of currency exchange rates, the equivalent of that component is higher than 100 EUR for retail exposures or 500 EUR for exposures other than retail exposures, the threshold shall remain unchanged, unless the materiality threshold no longer reflects a level of risk that the competent authority considers to be reasonable.
