This Decision repeals the Implementing Decision 2014/908/EU on the list of third countries considered to be equivalent.

    • exposures to central governments, central banks, regional governments, local authorities and public sector entities for the purposes of Articles 114, 115 and 116 of CRR. Annex IV to the Decision shall be considered as applying supervisory and regulatory arrangements equivalent to those applied to credit institutions in the European Union.
