ECB updated the list of supervised entities in EU, with the number of significant supervised entities amounting to 115 as of the March 01, 2021 cut-off date. Changes have been made with respect to 10 entities, including the removal of certain entities from the list significant supervised entities. The entities that have been removed from the list of significant supervised institutions are Bank Degroof Petercam Spain, S.A., Banca di Credito Cooperativo di Buonabitacolo - Società cooperativa, SÜDWESTBANK Aktiengesellschaft, Immo-Bank Aktiengesellschaft, and EBS Mortgage Finance.
Moreover, with effect from December 18, 2020, Bpifrance S.A. (Banque Publique d’Investissement) (969500FYSB4IT3QWYB65) merged into Bpifrance Financement S.A (969500STN7T9MRUMJ267); therefore, its name must be deleted from the list of significant supervised entities. With effect from December 18, 2020, Bpifrance Financement S.A has changed its name to Bpifrance, which became a standalone entity. The list of supervised entities contains the ECB-supervised institutions, which comprise the significant (part A) and less significant credit institutions (part B). The table in Part A, which presents the list of significant institutions, also contains a column that provides the rationale for significance.
ECB reviews certain parameters that determine whether a credit institution or a group fulfills any of the significance criteria according to the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM) Framework Regulation (EU Regulation No 468/2014). In the SSM framework, the types of supervised banks are referred to as credit institutions, financial holding companies, mixed financial holding companies, and a branch established in a participating member state by a credit institution that is established in a non-participating member state. ECB updates the list of supervised entities regularly and the list reflects status of banks at the given cut-off date. This date does not necessarily coincide with the date of actual decision on the significance of a bank. The list is compiled on the basis of the significance decisions of ECB that refer to events that became effective up to the cut-off date.
