Riigikogu

The first reading of the Bill on Amendments to the Savings and Loan Associations Act and the Credit Institutions Act (7SE), initiated by the Estonian People’s Union Faction, was concluded. The Bill was prompted by the need to update the legislation concerning the savings and loan associations and to eliminate certain disproportionate restrictions to the formation and functioning of saving and loan associations. The major changes concern the expansion of the principle of territoriality to include the county level and the stipulation of additional principles of composition of savings and loan associations. In addition, the regulation ensuring the reliability of savings and loan associations is set out in a clearer manner and the terminology used in the Act is harmonised with the terminology used in the Commercial Associations Act and other Acts regulating the field of finance. The Bill was sent to the second reading.
