This chapter focuses on the powers of the three European Financial Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) and their role of overseeing financial regulation in the EU. These three authorities are: the European Banking Authority; the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority, and the European Securities and Markets Authority. The chapter defines the ESAs' remit by indicating their objectives and scope of action. It analyses the ESAs legally binding powers and non-legally binding tools by giving an overview of the Regulatory Technical Standards. It discusses the ESA's governance structure by comparing it to a limited company and highlights the numerous provisions relating to administrative status and functioning. In addition, the chapter describes the review clause reporting on the experience to the operation of the ESAs.
