EBA publishes final revised technical standards to enhance quality and con-sistency of information for passport notifications


18 June 2020

The European Banking Authority (EBA) published today its Final draft amending Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) and Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) on passport notification. The two sets of amending technical standards increase the quality and consistency of information to be provided by a credit institution notifying its home competent authorities when it intends to open a branch or provide services in another Member State, as well as of the communication between home and host authorities.

In particular, the amendments focus on:

  1. requesting the credit institution to indicate as accurate, as accurately as possible, the intended start date of each activity for which the notification is submitted, rather than just of the core business activities;
  2. increasing the granularity of the information on the financial plan to be notified in case of establishment of a branch;
  3. providing additional information in case of termination of the branch.

Next steps and legal basis

The review of the two sets of technical standards on passport notification, originally enacted by the European Commission under Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1151/2014 and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 926/2014, has been done in accordance with Articles 35, 36 and 39 of Directive 2013/36/EU in combination with Article 29(d) of Regulation (EU) 1093/2010 establishing the EBA.
