LONDON, PARIS & FRANKFURT - The three European Union (EU) Level 3 committees have responded to the European Commission's views on the future supervision of the EU banking, securities and insurance sectors in the wake of the Larosière report's call for EU supervisory overhaul.
The London-based Committee of European Banking Supervisors (Cesr), the Parisian Committee of European Securities Regulators (Cesr), and the Frankfurt-housed Committee of European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Supervisors (Ceiops) broadly backed the high-level recommendations of Jacques de Larosière.
The 14-page joint statement by the three Lamfalussy committees emphasises the need for a harmonised set of core rules; the establishment of colleges as core structures for cross-border supervision; the need for a coherent framework for crisis resolution; and the need for increased and further formalised co-ordination among the sector regulators and supervisors.
