These draft Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) outline the procedures, forms and templates that competent authorities in the EU should use when consulting each other on acquisitions and increases of qualifying holdings in credit institutions. The objective of these ITS is to streamline information exchanges and ensure effective communications between concerned authorities, both on a cross-border basis and across sectors. These ITS also lay down in detail the process and timeframes for notifying an information request and for responding to it, and provide a set of relevant templates for this purpose. Requirements for the designation of contact points within competent authorities, as well as requirements for language and means of communication are also developed.
