EBA welcomes Council decision on its relocation

20 November 2017

The European Banking Authority (EBA) welcomes the Council's decision on its relocation to Paris, in light of the UK's intention to withdraw from the EU. This is an important decision for the Authority that guarantees a seamless continuation of its activities by reassuring its current and future staff over the new location and putting an end to a period of uncertainty. The EBA is confident that France will support the Authority to ensure a smooth transition, which is crucial to continue delivering on its mission objectives of maintaining financial stability in the EU and safeguarding the integrity, efficiency and orderly functioning of the banking sector.
