Belgium - combined risk-weight increase for mortgage loans

The measure increases the risk-weight for retail exposures secured by residential immovable property located in Belgium applied by banks using the internal ratings-based approach. The measure has two components:

  1. a flat add-on of 5 percentage point to the risk-weight calculated in accordance with point (2).
  2. a proportionate add-on of 33 per cent of the exposure-weighted average of the risk-weights applied to the portfolio of these retail exposures. The exposure-weighted average is the average of the risk-weights of the individual loans calculated in accordance with Article 154 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, weighted by the relevant exposure value.
