Previous chapter | Next chapter

Bank Pekao S.A. computes capital adequacy requirements for credit risk purposes under the Standardized Approach and for operational risk purposes under Advanced Measurement Approach, remaining fully compliant with Pillar I requirements. In 2008, it also prepared and approved the Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process - the basic constituent of Pillar II. The disclosure requirements under Pillar III are fulfilled as well.

In 2013, the European Parliament adopted a package of regulations known as Basel III, consisting of the following documents:

  • regulation No. 575/2013 of June 26, 2013 on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms and amending regulation No. 648/2012,
  • Directive 2013/36/UE on access to the activity of credit institutions and the prudential supervision of credit institutions and investment firms, amending directive 2002/87/UE and repealing directives 2006/48/EC and 2006/49/EC.

The Bank performed appropriate adjustments in 2014 to the capital requirements calculation rules resulting from the introduction of the above mentioned European regulations.
