List of supervised banks

The ECB maintains a list of all significant banks under its direct supervision and less significant banks under its indirect supervision.

The list of supervised entities is updated regularly and reflects all decisions on bank significance that entered into force before the relevant cut-off date.

Number of banks directly supervised by the ECB: 111

Changes in significance status

The ECB reviews the significance status of all banks under European banking supervision every year. It also carries out ad hoc assessments during the year whenever necessary, for instance in the context of the granting of authorisations (licensing), the withdrawal of authorisations, or when changes occur in the structure of a group.
