European Banking Authority Issues Final Draft Regulatory and Implementing Technical Standards on Applications for Authorization of Credit Institutions
07/14/2017The European Banking Authority has published its final draft Regulatory Technical Standards setting out a comprehensive list of the information that must be provided to national regulators by firms applying for authorization as a credit institution under the Capital Requirements Directive. The final draft RTS are accompanied by final draft Implementing Technical Standards which set out the various procedures and requirements for making applications, along with a template to be used and guidance on how national regulators should deal with incomplete applications. The next step is for the European Commission to consider the draft RTS and ITS with a view to making a decision whether to endorse them via delegated legislation. In an accompanying press release, the EBA urges the Commission to consider adopting the RTS and ITS at the earliest opportunity to enable processing of applications from entities seeking to relocate to continental Europe in the context of the UK's withdrawal from the European Union.
