The European Banking Authority (EBA) issued today its final Guidelines defining the criteria that EU competent authorities will use to identify institutions that are systemically important either at Union or Member State level, the so-called ‘other systemically important institutions’ (O-SIIs). These Guidelines aim at setting uniform parameters at EU level while taking into account specificities of Member States’ individual banking sectors, so as to achieve an appropriate degree of convergence in the identification process as well as at ensuring a comparable, clear and transparent assessment of systemically important institutions in the EU.
