In case of licence applications to become a credit institution in the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), or to extend an already granted licence to offer additional services (according to national law and Annex I of the Capital Requirements Directive), market participants are kindly invited to use the SSM – Information Management System (IMAS) portal as a platform to communicate with supervisors. Further information, such as the regime of use depending on national regulation, is accessible online via the IMAS portal website. Additionally, the European Central Bank’s Banking Supervision Website (Authorisations) provides more information. The ECB Banking Supervision team and the National Competent Authorities can provide further support.
