Supervisory Board

The Supervisory Board meets every three weeks to discuss, plan and carry out the ECB’s supervisory tasks.

Supervisory Board

It proposes draft decisions to the Governing Council under the non-objection procedure.

ECB Governing Council


  • Chair (appointed for a non-renewable term of five years)
  • Vice-Chair (chosen from among the members of the ECB's Executive Board)
  • four ECB representatives
  • representatives of national supervisors

If the national supervisory authority designated by a Member State is not a national central bank (NCB), the representative of the competent authority can be accompanied by a representative from their NCB. In such cases, the representatives are together considered as one member for the purposes of the voting procedure.
