The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and the European Banking Authority (EBA) published their revised final joint Guidelines on the assessment of the suitability of members of the management body and key function holders in particular with regard to money laundering and financing terrorism risks, and gender diversity.
The Guidelines apply to all institutions, independent of their governance structures (unitary board,
dual board or other structures), without advocating or preferring any specific structure as set out
in the defined scope of application. The terms ‘management body in its management function’ and
‘management body in its supervisory function’ should be interpreted throughout the Guidelines in
accordance with the applicable law within each Member State.
