The prudential treatment of certain software assets was revised by Regulation (EU) 2019/876, in order to further support the transition towards a more digitalised banking sector.

This Commission Delegated Regulation further specifies how that exemption from deductions is to be applied, by defining the exact scope of software assets to be exempted and how they will be risk-weighted.
