    Goals / Remit

    Rating agencies have very different business models, some provide solicited ratings other unsolicited ones. Some ratings are public, others are only private. Finally rating agencies might be involved only in specific markets or locations.
    In consideration of this diversity of business models, the association will be a platform of cooperation for European Credit Rating Agencies (“CRA”). The purposes are the promotion of Credit Ratings across Europe and the promotion of the interests of the European Credit Rating Agencies.

    Objectives of the association include without limitations:
    a) Promote the interests of the CRA’s in the context of legislative measures and the communication with the relevant stakeholders (eg regulators, supervisors, market operators and the financial community as a whole)
    b) Enhance the understanding and the functioning of Credit Ratings to the financial community and the general public

    Main EU files targeted

    EACRA focus lies on all regulatory developments linked to the Credit Rating Agencies Regulation and on the use of these credit ratings in other areas of legislation.

  • Meetings


    1 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
