Pursuant to Article 70 para. 2 of the Austrian Banking Act (BWG; Bankwesengesetz) the FMA may “in cases of the fulfilment of the credit institution’s obligations to its creditors being endangered, in particular for the safeguarding of assets that have been entrusted to it, issue an administrative decision ordering temporary measures in order to avert such danger, with such measures ceasing to be effective at the latest 18 months after they enter into effect.”
