The draft version of the Regulation was put up for consultation in September 2017. Six parties submitted a response. The responses and the ensuing amendments to the final version of the Regulation (Rbb 2017) were listed in a feedback table, which is included in the Downloads section below. Most respondents welcomed the decision to structure the new Regulation on a sectoral basis.
We also updated the Q&As on sound remuneration policies on our Open Book on Supervision pages. As a principle, we no longer provide additional explanations or interpretations if the European supervisory authorities have already done so. This means most of the Q&As from July 2014 on sound remuneration policies further to the Wft have become obsolete with the publication of the EBA Guidelines on sound remuneration policies (EBA/GL/2015/22) on 27 June 2016. The policy described in the Q&A document "Proportional application of the Regulation on Sound Remuneration Policies on categories of Identified Staff" will be continued until a more detailed interpretation pursuant to the Capital Requirements Directive (CRD IV) is available. The Q&A document "Further interpretation of the exception to the 20% bonus cap for the parent company of a group" also continues to apply.
