EBA publishes the first of three opinions on the implementation of the Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive

It proposes a number of changes aimed at strengthening depositor protection, enhancing financial stability and improving operational effectiveness. Two other opinions are forthcoming later in 2019.

The EBA opinion responds to a mandate under the DGSD and covers the eligibility of deposits, coverage level and cooperation between deposit guarantee schemes.

The opinion proposes changes in relation to the current provisions on transfers of DGS contributions between DGSs, DGSs' cooperation with various stakeholders, the current list of exclusions from eligibility, current provisions on eligibility, depositor information, the approach to third country branches' DGS membership, the implications of the recent review of the three European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs), and cross-references to other EU regulations and EU directives.

The opinion proposes no changes, for example, to the current coverage level of EUR 100,000, provisions on home-host cooperation, cooperation agreements, or the cooperation between the EBA and the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB).
