    Commission Public Consultation: Inception Impact Assessment on SBBS Context and problem definition The Commission Inception Impact Assessment (IIA) states that Sovereign Bond Backed Securities (SBBS) could facilitate diversification of banks’ sovereign exposures and thus further weaken the bank-sovereign nexus, further stating that the former proved to be a key vulnerability in the euro area debt crisis.
