Statement from the NBS Bank Board’s 21st meeting of 2020
The Bank Board of Národná banka Slovenska today (13 October) held its 21st meeting of 2020, chaired by NBS Governor Peter Kažimír.
The Bank Board approved a Decision of Národná banka Slovenska amending Decision No 2/2015 of Národná banka Slovenska of 28 April 2015 on the implementation of the Eurosystem monetary policy framework in the Slovak Republic, as amended.
The amending Decision introduces a further measure in regard to the extension of the additional credit claims (ACC) framework in Slovakia, which temporarily allows NBS to accept as collateral in Eurosystem monetary policy operations credit claims that do not fulfil all the standard eligibility criteria. The amendment allows the use of credit claims guaranteed by the Export-Import Bank of the Slovak Republic within a COVID-19 guarantee scheme approved by the Slovak Government.
The Bank Board approved a Decree of Národná banka Slovenska amending Decree No 8/2020 on reporting by payment institutions, branches of foreign payment institutions, electronic money institutions and branches of foreign electronic money institutions.
The Decree clarifies and supplements the template for the reporting of fraud data pursuant to Section 28d(3) of the Payment Services Act (No 492/2009), doing so on the basis of the European Banking Authority’s 2020 Guidelines amending Guidelines EBA/GL/2018/05. The Decree also includes a new template for AML/CFT reporting by payment service agents of payment institutions, branches of foreign payment institutions, electronic money institutions, and branches of foreign electronic money institutions; the template is based on knowledge gained from experience.
The Decree takes effect on 31 December 2020.
