The Guidelines specify the internal governance arrangements for granting and monitoring of credit facilities throughout their lifecycle. They introduce requirements for borrowers’ creditworthiness assessment and bring together the EBA’s prudential and consumer protection objectives. The guidelines aim to ensure that institutions have robust and prudent standards for credit risk taking, management and monitoring, and that newly originated loans are of high credit quality. The Guidelines also aim to ensure that the institutions’ practices are aligned with consumer protection rules and AML requirements.
