For this purpose, the managers and directors of the Bank are instructed by means of an administrative decision to cooperate with the temporary administrator and to in particular actively involve them operatively in all agendas and competences in accordance with the bank’s rules of procedure. In addition, the temporary administrator must be consulted prior to certain decisions being taken by the senior management and the management board, and their approval obtained. Furthermore, the temporary administrator is granted a power of representation to be able to replace the bank’s senior management in the event that the bank does not have a management body.

This early intervention measure applies until the need for early intervention is lifted, but is limited to a maximum period of twelve months.
