Banking regulations – On 1 January 2006, the entire financial market supervision of the National Bank of Slovakia covering banking, the capital market, insurance and pension savings was integrated. As part of the financial market supervision integration, the Financial Market Authority was dissolved by law and all its powers and responsibilities were transferred to the National Bank of Slovakia. Currently, supervision is risk-focused and its basic objective is to provide for minimisation of the individual types of risks in supervised entities. For that purpose, secondary legislation (decrees and regulations) has been adopted in the first phase on the basis of valid and effective laws (particularly the Banking Act).
