On January 28, 2016, RTS and ITS on the operational functioning and general conditions for the functioning of colleges of supervisors under the CRD were published in the Official Journal of the European Union. Colleges bring together different national and European regulatory authorities that supervise a banking group and provide a framework for coordinating and performing supervisory duties within the EU banking sector. The College of Supervisors is established for EEA banks with subsidiaries or significant branches in other EEA countries and includes national regulators from the EU as well as non-EU areas when necessary. The Regulations deal with matters including: (i) the mapping of group institutions; (ii) the designation of members and observers of a college; and (iii) participation in college meetings and activities. The Regulations enter into force on February 17, 2016.
