The application for granting authorisations and approvals is submitted on the application form together with the required documents.
Common procedures are those procedures for which a decision is taken by the ECB, regardless of the significance of the credit institution concerned. These are procedures for:
- authorisations to take up the business of a credit institution (including an authorisation to provide certain financial services/extension of the existing licence);,
- withdrawals of such authorisations (including withdrawal to provide certain financial services);
- the assessment of acquisitions of qualifying holding;
- (mixed) financial holding companies.
