Our response to Coronavirus (Covid-19)

The European Banking Authority (EBA) supports the measures taken and proposed by national governments and EU bodies to address and mitigate the adverse systemic economic impact of COVID-19 on the EU banking sector. In this context, the EBA intends to provide clarity to banks and consumers on the application of prudential and supervisory measures to support lending into the real economy, whilst maintaining high standards of conduct, consumer protection and measures to tackle financial crime.
