On 20 March 2019, the European Banking Authority (EBA) issued new Guidelines on the STS criteria for securitisation (EBA/GL/2018/08) and EBA/GL/2018/09). The Guidelines will be imposed into Finnish law by the FIN-FSA’s regulations and guidelines 3/2019.

In its guidelines, the FIN-FSA recommends that entities falling within the scope of application of the guidelines comply with the above mentioned EBA Guidelines.

The Guidelines apply to institutional investors and originators, sponsors, original lenders and securitisation special purpose entities (SSPEs) acting as parties involved in securitisations.

The Guidelines will enter into force on 15 May 2019.

According to Article 16(3) of the EBA Regulation (1093/2010), competent authorities and financial institutions must in all ways possible seek to comply with EBA’s Guidelines and recommendations.
