Joint Guidelines for the prudential assessment of acquisitions of qualifying holdings

status: Final and translated into the EU official languages

These proposed joint Guidelines define common procedures based on the assessment criteria laid down in the EU legislative framework  that establishes how acquisitions and increases of qualifying holdings by natural or legal persons in financial institutions should be assessed.  They also develop further the assessment process defined in the EU legislative framework and aim to harmonise supervisory practices in the financial sector across the EU to provide more clarity to proposed acquirers on how they should notify the competent supervisory authorities.
