On 5 October 2021, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published its annual work programme for 2022, describing its activities and tasks as well as key strategic areas of work for next year.

For 2022, the EBA has set five vertical priorities:

  • Monitoring and updating the prudential framework for supervision and resolution.
  • Revisiting and strengthening the EU-wide stress-testing framework.
  • Leveraging the European centralised infrastructure for supervisory data.
  • Deepening analysis and information-sharing in the areas of digital resilience, fintech and innovation.
  • Fighting AML/CFT and contributing to a new EU infrastructure.

The EBA has also set two horizontal priorities:

  • Providing tools to measure and manage environmental, social and corporate governance risks.
  • Monitoring and mitigating the impact of COVID-19.

The EBA sets out further granular information concerning its policy and convergence work on pages 14 to 24 of its annual work programme.
