On 17 June 2020, the European Banking Authority (EBA) announced that it had expanded the scope of its Questions and Answers (Q&A) process and tool to enable the submission of questions on both anti-money-laundering and consumer protection legislation under the EBA’s scope. Going forward, submitted questions, subject to meeting the prescribed criteria, will be published on the EBA’s website while their answers are being prepared. The EBA has also made some changes to expand and update its online Interactive Single Rulebook.
