EBA support and monitoring of college
activities
The EBA is mandated to contribute to promot-
ing and monitoring the efficient, effective and
consistent functioning of colleges of supervi-
sors established in the EEA. At the beginning
of 2012, the EBA conducted its mapping exer-
cise working closely with national competent
authorities to identify the total number of EEA
colleges established. This exercise, request-
ing data from the competent authorities, re-
vealed that the total number of EEA colleges
with parent institutions in the EEA was closer
to 90 in comparison to the over 100 at the start
of 2011. This reduction was due, in part, to
various bank restructuring activities during
the course of 2011. Figure 3 demonstrates the
distribution of these colleges per consolidating
supervisory country. This annual exercise also
serves to inform on the level of cross-border
activity for each of these banks, which helps
the EBA conduct analysis and monitor colleges
appropriate to their size and complexity.
The list of ‘closely monitored’ colleges for
2012, consisting of the largest cross-border
banks headquartered in the EEA and which the
EBA staff engage in and monitor more closely
stood at 40 banks. Figure 4 demonstrates the
distribution of the closely monitored colleges
per consolidating supervisory country. With
these banks the EBA follows their progress
throughout the year by monitoring their super-
visory planning and reviewing, and discussing
the group risk assessment and joint decisions
on capital adequacy for the group, as well as
overseeing their crisis management planning.
Specifically, the EBA engagement with the
‘closely monitored’ colleges could be divided
into two components:
(i) active participation in over 70 physical
college meetings and teleconferences
and an additional 22 college meetings
dedicated to crisis management, known
as Crisis Management Groups (CMG) (see
Figures 3 and 4, where the EBA is a full
member of the college;
(ii) close cooperation with the college to en-
sure adherence to the annual EBA action
plan for colleges, which focused this year
on crisis management preparedness-­
related issues as well as on the fulfilment of
Colleges of
supervisors
Permanent and flexible structures
for the coordination of supervisory
activities. They are established under
EU law for EEA banks with subsidiaries
or significant branches in other
EEA countries. They may include
supervisors in non-EEA countries,
where relevant.
