Banking Union

The banking union was created to ensure that banks are stronger and better supervised, as well as to ensure that, should problems arise in the financial sector, the banks can be resolved, i.e. restructured, more efficiently. It is an important step towards a genuine Economic and Monetary Union, allowing for the consistent application of EU banking rules in the participating countries. The decision-making procedures and tools help to create a more transparent, unified and safer market for banks.
