The FIN-FSA’s banking supervision is responsible, in cooperation with the European Central Bank, for the prudential supervision of credit institutions. We supervise the credibility, risk management practices and risk-taking of credit institutions and are responsible for international cooperation in our field of competence, for example within the framework of colleges of supervisors.
We also process the authorisation and registration applications falling within our responsibility and participate in the development of legislation in our field of expertise.
We also supervise banks’ and payment service providers’ compliance with agreed practices and consumer protection rules. See the Consumer protection site.
