On September 23, 2015, the EBA published final translations of its Guidelines on methods for calculating contributions to Deposit Guarantee Schemes under the Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive. The Guidelines include: (i) the principles that should be used for developing or approving methods for calculating contributions to DGSs; (ii) the mandatory elements of calculation methods; and (iii) the optional elements of calculation methods. National regulators must notify the EBA within two months of the publication of the translated guidelines whether they comply or intend to comply with those Guidelines.

The guidelines are available at: http://www.eba.europa.eu/documents/10180/1089322/EBA-GL-2015- 10_GL+on+Calculation+of+Contributions+DGS.pdf/92da0adb-3e16-480f-8720-94f744ea7a44
