Provision of a EUR 30 million stand-by credit line to the Deposit Insurance Agency of Bosnia and Herzgovina (DIA BiH) which replaces the existing EUR 50 million stand-by credit line. It will be fully guaranteed by Bosnia and Herzegovina.
As a stand-by credit line the EBRD finance is designed to provide immediate funds to DIA BiH, if and when required, to fulfill its mandate in compensating its depositors, but as a stand-by line it would be substantially more cost effective than a loan.
The credit line ensures that DIA BiH keeps adequate contingency financing in place for its liquidity needs and will also ensure necessary coverage of the insured deposits and thus maintain and ensure confidence in the country's banking sector. The transaction will also support the ongoing efforts to align the legal and regulatory framework with international best practices, such as the Core Principles for Effective Deposit Insurance Systems and the pertinent EU regulations
A strong deposit insurance system is a key component of an effectively functioning financial market.
The proposed financing to DIA BiH aims to enhance the Deposit Insurance Fund liquidity profile and will also support the reforms undertaken in the BiH deposit insurance system in view of the new legislation framework related to bank resolution. The project will thus contribute to bolstering confidence in the BiH banking sector.
DEPOSIT INSURANCE AGENCY OF BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
DIA BiH was established by the Law on Deposit Insurance in Banks of Bosnia and Herzegovina in August 2002. DIA BiH is an independent, non-profit legal entity designed to provide deposit insurance to all eligible depositors that hold accounts with member banks.

Environmental and Social Summary
Categorised FI (2014 ESP). DIA BiH will be required to comply with PRs 2 and 4. PR 9 does not apply as DIA BiH is a public entity responsible for providing deposit insurance for other financial institutions, and therefore the only risks envisaged are those related to labour and health and safety.
It is estimated that up to EUR 400,000 will be needed for a capacity building TC in DIA BiH. Capacity building will help DIA BiH implement the new Law on Deposit Insurance which introduces bank resolution mechanism into the banking system.
