The bill is intended to improve corporate governance in banks, in particular to strengthen the responsibility of the bank's council and board, and the internal control and risk management system. The bill introduces a new capital structure (including capital buffers) that will strengthen the bank's ability to absorb losses, as well as additional requirements for members of the bank's council and board.

The National Bank will be given the right to establish individual size of economic standards for banks depending on the riskiness of activities and the right to demand changes in the composition of the council or board of the bank, if the current composition of these bodies is not able to ensure effective management and control over the activities of the financial institution.

The bill also clarifies certain provisions of banking legislation, in particular regarding consolidated supervision of banking groups, licensing of banks, approval of the acquisition of significant participation in banks and requirements for their ownership structures.
