The 2011 EU-wide stress test reports will be released at 12 PM ET: Some country reports might be released earlier, but the summary report and the aggregate results will be published by the European Banking Authority (EBA) at 6pm CEST (5pm BST) on Friday, July 15th.

Here is the page for the European Banking Authority (EBA) (it will probably crash at 12 PM ET).

From the NY Times: Europe Looks for Hope in Bank Test Results

[T]he euro zone’s top banking supervisor will announce on Friday the results of its latest examination into the health of its financial institutions. It is an exercise that an increasingly desperate European Union hopes will quell investor fears ... Since the last stress tests a year ago, the banks have raised 67 billion euros ($94.2 billion) in new capital, according to Morgan Stanley, a relative pittance given that European banks have on their books 1.1 trillion euros in government debt from Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain.
