COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION
Brussels, 16 December 2013
The Council today adopted a decision appointing Danièle Nouy as the first-ever chairperson of the supervisory board of the European Central Bank.
The ECB will have direct oversight of eurozone banks under the single supervisory mechanism (SSM) – one of the key elements of Europe's banking union – and will be responsible for the overall functioning of the SSM. It will carry out its supervisory tasks in a differentiated manner, in close cooperation with national supervisory authorities.
