The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today its annual work programme for 2022, describing the activities and tasks of the Authority as well as its key strategic areas of work for the coming year.
For 2022, the EBA has set five vertical priorities: i) monitoring and updating the prudential framework for supervision and resolution; ii) revisiting and strengthening the EU-wide stress-testing framework; iii) leveraging the European centralised infrastructure for supervisory data (EUCLID); iv) deepening analysis and information-sharing in the areas of digital resilience, fintech and innovation; and v) fighting AML/CFT and contributing to a new EU infrastructure.
Moreover, the EBA has set two horizontal priorities: a) providing tools to measure and manage environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) risks; and b) monitoring and mitigating the impact of COVID-19.
To foster synergies and efficiency, the overall number of EBA activities was streamlined compared to 2021 and the EBA organisational structure adjusted as of 1 June 2021.
The work programme benefits from input of the EBA’s Advisory Committee on Proportionality.
The executive summary of the EBA work programme for 2022 will be made available in all EU official languages.
