Every year the ECB publishes an annual report on how it has carried out its supervisory tasks. The report is usually published in March of the following year.
The Chair of the Supervisory Board of the ECB presents the report to the European Parliament at a public hearing.
Banks’ ratios of the highest quality capital, Common Equity Tier 1, rose to 14.1% in 2018 from 11.3% at the end of 2014.
The quality of banks’ assets further improved. The non-performing loans ratio fell to 4.2% in 2018 from 8% in 2014.
The Supervisory Board of the ECB took 1,924 decisions, most of which were on fit and proper assessments (1,006), internal models (160) and own funds (153).
The ECB submits the annual report on supervisory activities to the European Parliament, the EU Council, the Eurogroup, the European Commission and the national parliaments of the euro area countries.
