German Banking Industry Committee: Agreement on Basel IV must not be detrimental to Europe's economy

German banks are well capitalized and will be able to cope with the higher capital requirements. Nevertheless, it is impossible to rule out a negative impact on lending to companies and retail customers in Europe.

When they transpose the Basel requirements into law, European legislators will have to take account – as they do at present – of the distinctive features of the German and European markets as well as aspects of proportionality. We therefore welcome the European Commission's intention to conduct a comprehensive impact assessment beforehand. 

Moreover, European legislators should not begin transposing the requirements into law unless there is clear evidence that the new rules, including the stricter trading book requirements, are being implemented in other major jurisdictions.
