Using the IMAS portal
The IMAS portal allows supervised banks and third parties to submit information related to supervisory processes, track their status and exchange information with supervisors. If you already have an account you can sign in and acknowledge the terms and conditions.Sign in to the IMAS portal
Launch of the portal
The IMAS portal was launched in early 2021. Depending on the type of supervisory process, both supervised banks (significant or less significant) as well as third parties (non-supervised entities or natural persons) can use it. Below you will find information on the processes available in the portal.
Supervised institutions can create their own users and manage their users’ access to the IMAS portal. They appoint delegated administrators who carry out this task.
For third-party users, the ECB will act as the administrator.
Registering into the IMAS portal
- Significant supervised institution: submit the registration form to the ECB (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Less significant institution: submit the registration form to the relevant NCA
- Third party: submit the registration form to the ECB (email@example.com)
Creating your user accounts
Delegated administrators can access the ECB Identity Portal to create new user accounts for their organisation and the IMAS portal to grant them granular permissions. For third parties, user accounts are directly created by the ECB.
For a quick reference on account activation and other essential technical information, you can consult the user manual. Full guidance on the use of the portal is provided inside the platform itself.How to access the IMAS portal for the first time User manual for account activation Explaining the IMAS portal: how do I access different processes

Processes available via the IMAS portal
Fit and proper assessments for significant banks
Significant banks can use the IMAS portal to submit their applications for fit and proper assessments, track the status of these assessments and exchange related information with supervisors.Fit and proper assessment
The use of the IMAS portal for fit and proper assessments is mandatory by law or as administrative practice in some countries and voluntary in others. The map below shows the status in each participating country. The IMAS portal does not change the way in which the ECB and national supervisory authorities cooperate: in all participating countries the national supervisory authority remains the entry point for fit and proper applications.Quick Guide to fit and proper applications
Both significant and less significant banks will be able to submit their passporting notifications via the IMAS portal.
