EBA to host workshop on proportionality measures for regulatory purposes

20 April 2015

On 3 July 2015, the European Banking Authority (EBA) will host its second workshop on the application of the proportionality principle in the EU banking supervisory framework, covering the latest institutional and regulatory reforms.

Proportionality is a central aspect of the regulatory work carried out by the EBA, as it ensures that all financial institutions across the EU are subject to harmonised regulatory standards and requirements according to their business nature, scale and complexity.

Experts from the supervisory community, the financial industry, EU institutions and academia will gather again to bring forward technical discussions and assess progress made since the last workshop on the application of the proportionality principle. The debate will cover several issues, from the complexity of current financial regulation to the important role of the industry in supporting the case for proportionality.

Registrations to the workshop will close on 9 June 2015 at 16.00 UK time. To register, click here.

Due to limited seating capacity and high demand, admissions will be granted on a first come first served basis. Please note that a maximum of two representatives per institution will be accepted. Participation in the event is free of charge. 

In order to ensure a favourable environment for a frank and honest debate among all interested parties, this workshop is not open to media representatives. The EBA nevertheless welcomes all media enquiries, on this or any other EBA related topic, questions can be addressed to the EBA's press office at: press@eba.europa.eu
