    Goals / Remit

    The BBA is the leading trade association for the UK banking sector with 200 member banks headquartered in over 50 countries with operations in 180 jurisdictions worldwide. Eighty per cent of global systemically important banks are members of the BBA.

    The BBA supports and promotes policies and initiatives at national, European and international levels that balance both the interest of banks and the wider public benefit. Our work is underpinned by three core priorities:

    Helping customers – both consumers and businesses,

    Promoting growth, including supporting the UK as a global financial centre,

    Raising standards – both professional and ethical.

    Main EU files targeted

    The main issues for the BBA include the various activities our members undertake that are regulated by the EU Institutions. These issues include clearing and settlement, capital requirements, accounting standards, tax rules, retail banking activities such as consumer credit, bank accounts, financial inclusion and education, as well as collective redress, and rules on supervision of credit institutions (cross-border and national).
