Guidelines on passport notifications for credit intermediaries

status: Final and translated into the EU official languages

Article 32 of the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD) provides that passport notifications will need to be exchanged between national authorities competent for the registration and/or supervision of mortgage credit intermediaries across the EU Member States. The EBA Guidelines formalise the notification process between the national authorities in the home and host Member States. They will ensure that information on the provision of services and the establishment of branches, as well as on the transmission of notifications, the registrations, and the notifications of changes is shared consistently across the EU. The Guidelines also include template notification forms for exercising the freedom to provide services and freedom of establishment, as foreseen in Article 32 of the MCD. The Guidelines apply from 21 March 2016, the transposition date of the MCD.
