The Governing Council of the European Central Bank (ECB) has adopted a decision to establish close cooperation with Hrvatska narodna banka (Croatian National Bank) following the fulfilment of the necessary supervisory and legislative prerequisites. In parallel, the inclusion of the Croatian kuna in the Exchange Rate Mechanism II was announced today. Together, these two steps pave the way for Croatia’s future participation in the euro area.

The decision on close cooperation will apply 14 days after its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. Starting from 1 October 2020, the ECB will be in charge of the direct supervision of the significant institutions in the Republic of Croatia and the common procedures for all supervised entities, as well as the oversight of less significant institutions. In the meantime, the ECB will carry out an assessment to determine which banks fulfil the criteria to be classified as significant institutions.

ECB Banking Supervision and Hrvatska narodna banka are making preparations to ensure a smooth transition to the new supervisory regime.

“We are very pleased to welcome Croatia into the Single Supervisory Mechanism and the ECB Banking Supervision family,” said Andrea Enria, Chair of the ECB’s Supervisory Board. “This marks an important milestone in the history of the banking union, as it extends its span beyond members of the euro area.”

Hrvatska narodna banka will have a representative on the ECB’s Supervisory Board with the same rights and obligations as all other members, including voting rights.
