Are credit unions PIEs?

Article 2 of Directive 2013/36/EU where the definition of ‘credit institution’ (in respect of the current PIEs definition) originates from, specifically removes Irish credit unions as an entity type bound by the same Directive. This in turn is interpreted as exempting Irish Credit Unions from the PIEs (as defined in Directive 2014/56/EC) classification of b) ‘Credit Institution’.
