The EPPO and banking supervisory authorities

In the European arena, the EPPO will have to develop links with banking supervisory authorities, which have a long-standing tradition of cooperation with judicial authorities. In the EU supervisory banking authorities play an important role to provide information and where appropriate technical expertise to national prosecutors. Such a role is supported by various provisions in the banking and anti-money laundering EU and national legislative framework. In this context, Banca d’Italia has a long-standing tradition for cooperation with judicial authorities. The presentation will illustrate the grounds for cooperation between supervisory authorities and criminal prosecutors and how such co- operation developed and supported by the European legislative framework. It is expected that EPPO will have to establish similar links with supervisory authorities.
Participants:
Benedetta Ubertazzi;
Graziano Grasso;
Daniele Luison.

The EPPO working arrangements with the European Court of Auditors (ECA) and the Italian Gen- eral Prosecutor’s Office of the Court of Auditors (“Procura Generale presso la Corte dei conti”)

This arrangement outlines the conditions for the close cooperation by which this can occur, in full respect of the respective mandates of the EPPO and the Court.
