On 21 February 2023, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published a final report containing revised guidelines on methods for calculating contributions to deposit guarantee schemes (DGS) under the Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive (DGSD).

The DGSD mandates the EBA to develop guidelines on methods for calculating contributions to DGSs and to review them at least every 5 years. During its latest review of the guidelines in 2021-2022 the EBA concluded that several elements of the calculation method needed to be improved. In July 2022 the EBA issued a consultation paper in which it proposed targeted amendments and set out draft revised guidelines. The final report now published sets out the final revised guidelines and feedback from the consultation. The EBA has gone ahead with the amendments proposed in its consultation and also provided further guidance on how to apply a stock-based approach to calculating contributions.

The revised guidelines apply from 3 July 2024.
