On 14 May 2021, the European Central Bank announced its decision to start ensuring that the banks it directly supervises comply with the requirements for risk retention, transparency and resecuritisation, which are set out under Articles 6 to 8 of the EU Securitisation Regulation. The decision follows recent amendments to the Regulation which provide that risk retention, transparency and the ban of resecuritisation requirements are prudential in nature and therefore should be supervised by competent prudential supervisory authorities.
