Banking Union: Council adopts measures to reduce risk in the banking system

May 14th, 2019

The EU is putting in place a new framework which will strengthen the banking union and reduce risks in the financial system.

The Council today adopted a comprehensive legislative package which will reduce risks in the banking sector and further reinforce banks’ ability to withstand potential shocks.

The package contains amendments to the capital requirement legislation (regulation 575/2013 and directive 2013/36/EU) which reinforce the capital and liquidity positions of banks, and strengthens the framework for the recovery and resolution of banks in difficulty (directive 2014/59/EU and regulation 806/2014).
