REPORT OF THE STANDING COMMITTEE OF THE EFTA STATES

List of Credit Institutions authorised in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway provided for in Article 14 of Directive 2006/48/EC

(2008/C 239/07)

1.

Article 14 of Directive 2006/48/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 June 2006 relating to the taking up and pursuit of the business of credit institutions (recast) (1) require the European Commission to draw up and publish a list in the Official Journal of all credit institutions to which authorisation has been granted as outlined in the Directive. Paragraph 6(b) of Protocol 1 to the EEA Agreement requires that ‘where according to an act, facts, procedures, reports and the like are to be published in the Official Journal of the European Communities the corresponding information regarding the EFTA States shall be published in a separate section thereof’.

2.

This is the eighth occasion on which the Standing Committee of the EFTA States complies with the above requirement. The list published in the Annex to this communication comprises all the credit institutions that were engaged in business in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway on 31 December 2007 falling within the scope of the Capital Requirement Directive 2006/48/EC.

3.

The present list was drawn up by the Standing Committee of the EFTA States on the basis of information supplied by the EFTA States concerned. The list has no legal significance and confers no right in law. If an unauthorised institution is inadvertently included in the list, its legal status is in no way altered; similarly, if an institution has inadvertently been omitted from the list, the validity of its authorisation will not be affected.
