  • EBA consults on scope of its draft guidelines on connected clients

    The European Banking Authority launched today a consultation focusing on the scope of its draft Guidelines on connected clients, on which it had already sought the stakeholders’ views in July 2016. In the new consultation, the EBA is proposing to extend the scope of these draft Guidelines to the remaining aspects of the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR), the EBA technical standards, and the EBA guidelines where the concept of group of connected client is relevant. The extension of the scope would ensure the consistent application of this concept throughout the CRR and the harmonisation of institutions’ practices. The consultation runs until 25 June 2017.
