The European Banking Authority (EBA) issued a statement on 31 March titled, "actions to mitigate financial crime risks in the COVID-19 pandemic" calling on competent supervisory authorities to make clear that financial crime risk remains unacceptable and share information on supervision and typologies to ensure ongoing compliance. 

The EBA does caution some flexibility, however, urging authorities to consider postponing non-essential inspections, and to make use of virtual methods of information gathering.
