In September 2017, the European Banking Authority (EBA) has published the revised regulations regarding internal governance. These regulations target the further harmonization of internal governance arrangements, processes and mechanisms of institutions in the EU, in accordance with the new requirements in this area, introduced by the Capital Requirements Directive (CRD IV). The instructions must be read together with:

  • Regulations regarding remuneration policies;
  • The common EBA and ESMA regulations (European Securities and Markets Authority) regarding the assessment of the suitability of management personnel and key function holders.

The regulations promote more diverse governing bodies and as a result, contribute to the improvement of risk monitoring, to the institutions’ resistance level as well as improving the assessments of adequacy within the financial sectors of EU.
As of June 30, 2018, the EBA regulations is applicable to the competent authorities of EU and to financial institutions. The previous EBA regulations regarding internal governance (GL44) will be repealed on the same date.
