The European Banking Authority (EBA) today published an Opinion in response to the observations made by European Parliament in its 2021 Discharge Report. Out of 30 observations, which cover the areas of budget and financial management, performance, staff policy, procurement, prevention and management of conflicts of interest and transparency, internal control, digitalisation and green transition, business continuity along crisis, the EBA considers that 26 have already been implemented or do not require follow-up action. For four observations the follow-up is deemed to be an ongoing consideration.
Article 64(11) of the EBA Founding Regulation requires the EBA to provide a reasoned opinion on the European Parliament’s observations made during the discharge process.
