The ABI Credit Access Agreement 2019 (Accordo per il Credito 2019) was signed on 15 November 2018 by the Italian Banking Association (ABI) and certain Italian business associations (z.B. Confidustria, Coldiretti, Confedilizia, Confcommercio and Confesercenti) and after the spread of COVID-19, a new addition was adopted on 6 March 2020 to extend the scope of the ABI 2019 credit agreement to credit agreements concluded until 31 January. 2020. The ABI entered into a similar agreement with Thompson`s solicitors to protect access to justice. To date, it has been taken over by 279 law firms and 38 insurance companies. After joint verification, the coronavirus (Covid-19) Personnel Injury Protocol has been extended until at least May 20. The interest rate for suspension/extension operations may be increased from the interest rate provided for in the original loan agreement only on the basis of higher costs for the bank, closely related to the execution of the operation itself (in the event of suspensions of up to 60 basis points). Without prejudice to the foregoing, customers are not charged on additional costs and expenses that are not incurred by the bank vis-à-vis third parties for the purpose of executing the suspension. This date may still change, as the parties will meet again on 13 April 2020 to see if it is necessary to conclude further agreements and whether the amnesty of the statute of limitations requires an extension.
