EBA is consulting on draft Implementing Technical Standards (ITS) and Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) that deal with how regulators collaborate and exchange information in relation to institutions which passport on a branch or services basis into another Member State. The standards focus on exchange of supervisory information. The RTS address information covered by Article 50 of CRD 4 including: management and ownership; solvency and liquidity; deposit guarantee schemes; large exposures; and internal control mechanisms. The ITS cover procedures, forms and templates for information sharing requirements. EBA asks for comments by 8 October and should submit the standards to the Commission by 1 January 2014.
