On 16 April 2019, the European Parliament has approved an overhaul of banking rules addressing some of the loopholes exposed by the global financial crisis (the “Banking Package”).
The Banking Package, proposed by the European Commission in November 2016, represents an important step towards the completion of the European post-crisis regulatory reforms with the aim to allow further progress in completing the Banking Union.
The new rules set, inter alia, the level of funds banks must set aside to absorb losses and introduces new requirements for capital and liquidity, in line with global standards agreed after the 2007-09 financial crisis. This should help to boost the EU economy by increasing lending capacity and creating more liquid capital markets, and a clear roadmap to reduce risks in the banking sector by further reinforcing banks' ability to withstand potential shocks and deal with losses without having to resort to taxpayer funded bailouts.
The following legislative acts will be amended accordingly:
Next steps will be the formal approve without discussion of the EU Council and the publication in the EU Official Gazette.
