The European Parliament confirmed Andrea Enria as the first Chairperson of the European Banking Authority

Andrea Enria underlined the need for EBA to move towards a more integrated regulatory and supervisory framework in the Union and to work as a “hub and spoke” European system of supervision with the strong commitment from the National Supervisory Authorities.

The confirmation follows an open hearing held at the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee (ECON) of the European Parliament, where the selected candidates for the position of Chairpersons of the recently established European Supervisory Authorities, were heard by Members of the European Parliament.

The confirmation by the European Parliament was the final step in the selection procedure coordinated by the European Commission. The latter drew up the final shortlist of candidates from which Andrea Enria was selected as Chairperson by the EBA Board of Supervisors on 12 January.
