FRANKFURT (Reuters) - The European Central Bank is likely to delay the implementation of its new rules on non-performing loans by a few months as it needs time to process industry feedback, supervisory chief Daniele Nouy told a Portuguese newspaper.
"I think this process of analysis will take a month or two," Nouy told Público. "It is therefore very likely that implementation will be postponed by a few months."
"However, I would say that it doesn't change much whether it happens on say 1 January, 1 April or 1 June," she said, adding that there was no reason for a delay until 2019.
