Hearings at the European Parliament
As a rule, the Chair of the Supervisory Board appears three times per year before the European Parliament (EP). Once a year, she presents the ECB's Annual Report on supervisory activities to the plenary. The other two times she appears before the Parliament's ‘Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs' (ECON) to explain the ECB's execution of its supervisory tasks and to answer questions by Committee members.
Additional hearings of the Chair of the Supervisory Board may be organised at the request of the European Parliament, or on the initiative of the ECB. The meetings are open to the public.
Live webcast transmissions of the events are available on the Parliament's website.
