Supervisory fees

The ECB covers the costs of its supervisory tasks and responsibilities by levying an annual fee on all supervised banks.

The ECB Regulation on supervisory fees lays down the methodology and procedure for the calculation and collection of the ECB annual supervisory fees. This section of the banking supervision website complements this process.
