Certifying companies and list of qualifications
Law 5/2019 addresses a series of standards of conduct aimed at lenders and credit intermediaries. These include the requirement that employees of these institutions must possess the necessary expertise and skills in connection with the products they market and, if appropriate, with the ancillary services included in the loan contracts.
The Banco de España has received applications from universities, companies and institutions interested both in obtaining authorisation to become certifying companies and in including their qualifications in the list published on the Banco de España website.
In this press release we explain the current situation of the procedure for accreditation of certifying companies and for recognition of qualifications.
