On June 28, 2016, the EBA published translations of its final Guidelines on sound remuneration policies. The final Guidelines are applicable to banks and investment firms and cover all staff with particular aspects focusing on staff whose professional activities have a material impact on a firm's risk profile. The Guidelines will apply from January 1, 2017 and will repeal the existing guidelines produced by the Committee of European Banking Supervisors in December 2010. The Guidelines set out detailed requirements for remuneration policies, the related governance arrangements and processes for implementing remuneration policies.

The Final Guidelines are available at: http://www.eba.europa.eu/regulation-and-policy/remuneration/guidelines-on-soundremuneration-policies
