Following international discussions, especially in Europe ("Vickers" Commission, "Liikanen" Report), the Law of 26 July 2013 on the Separation and Regulation of Banking Activities reforms the regulation framework of the financial and banking sector in order to learn the lessons of the financial crisis.

In particular, it introduces new provisions concerning:

  • Separation of activities within banks
  • Banking resolution
  • Macro-prudential supervision
  • Transparency and the fight against financial failings
  • Strengthening AMF’s powers
  • Supervision of clearing houses and counterparties in derivatives transactions.
