Administrative Board of Review

The Administrative Board of Review (ABoR) carries out internal administrative reviews of the ECB’s supervisory decisions, ensuring that such decisions are compliant with the rules and procedures.

Administrative reviews may be requested by any person or legal entity directly affected by an ECB supervisory decision.

An ABoR review focuses on the “procedural and substantive conformity” of the contested decision with the SSM Regulation, while respecting the margin of discretion left to the ECB.

In practical terms, the ABoR reviews whether due process was respected, whether the reasoning behind the decision is appropriate, whether the decision complies with applicable law, whether there are any manifest errors in the assessment, whether the decision is manifestly disproportionate and whether the ECB misused its powers.

The outcome of the review is a non-binding opinion addressed to the Supervisory Board, proposing that it either abrogate the initial decision or replace it with an identical or amended one for final approval by the Governing Council under the non-objection procedure.
