    EP Approves Agreement on Package of CRD 5, CRR 2, BRRD 2, and SRMR 2

    April 16, 2019

    The European Parliament (EP) approved the final agreement on a package of reforms proposed by EC to strengthen the resilience and resolvability of European banks. The package of reforms comprises two regulations and two directives—namely amendments to the Capital Requirements Regulation and Directive (CRR/CRD), the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD), and the Single Resolution Mechanism Regulation (SRMR). Additionally, EC published a fact sheet on the package of reforms.

    This marks a milestone in the completion of the Banking Union, in the finalization of the post-crisis regulatory agenda, and in the implementation of international standards. Building on the existing rules, this set of adopted measures will address the remaining challenges to financial stability, while strengthening the global competitiveness of the EU banking sector. This package had already made subject of an agreement during the inter-institutional negotiations with the Council of the EU. The approved agreement on the package of reforms includes the following proposals:

    • Proposal for CRR 2 covers the leverage ratio, the net stable funding ratio, requirements for own funds and eligible liabilities, counterparty credit risk, market risk, exposures to central counterparties, exposures to collective investment undertakings, large exposures, reporting and disclosure requirements, and amends European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR or EU Regulation No 648/2012). 
    • Proposal for CRD 5 is on exempted entities, financial holding companies, mixed financial holding companies, remuneration, supervisory measures and powers, and capital conservation measures.
    • Proposal for SRMR 2 is about loss-absorbing and recapitalization capacity for credit institutions and investment firms.
    • Proposal for BRRD 2 is on loss-absorbing and recapitalization capacity of credit institutions and investment firms and it amends Directive 98/26/EC, Directive 2002/47/EC, Directive 2012/30/EU, Directive 2011/35/EU, Directive 2005/56/EC, Directive 2004/25/EC, and Directive 2007/36/EC.
