Credit servicers directive

At a Glance 13-10-2021

In March 2018, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a directive on credit servicers and credit purchasers as part of its overall strategy to tackle high volumes of non-performing loans (NPLs) accumulated on EU banks’ balance sheets. The proposal aims to foster the development of secondary markets for NPLs by removing undue obstacles to credit servicing and to the transfer of bank loans to third parties across the EU. The European Parliament is expected to vote during the October II plenary session on the text agreed in trilogue.
