The European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) and the EIB Group – the European Investment Bank and the European Investment Fund - signed a working arrangement on 7 December 2021. This arrangement aims to provide a structured framework for an efficient cooperation within their respective mandates and competences.

The cooperation, as established in this working arrangement, concerns the relevant areas of crime within the mandate of the EPPO, including specifically criminal offences affecting the financial interests of the European Union that are provided for in the PIF Directive.

Together, the EPPO and the EIB Group join forces to make the fight against fraud, corruption, money laundering and any other criminal offences affecting the Union’s financial interests, as efficient as possible avoiding duplication of efforts.
