    Swedish Government Proposes Changes to Crisis Management Rules

    February 18, 2021

    The Swedish National Debt Office (SNDO) issued clarifications on the Swedish government's proposed revisions to the regulations for managing financial firms in crisis. The proposal was referred to the Council on Legislation for consideration by the Swedish government. The referral to the Council on Legislation contains proposals on how parts of the EU banking package are to be transposed into Swedish law. The referral pertains to parts of the banking package that concern resolution and the Minimum Requirement for Own Funds and Eligible Liabilities (MREL). The changes are proposed to enter into force on July 01, 2021.

    At this juncture, SNDO clarified how certain regulatory changes will affect the its work in the near future. The referral states that the decisions of SNDO on MREL requirements in accordance with the new regulations shall apply as of January 01, 2024. To enable a linear build-up to the requirements that are to be met in 2024, SNDO must also determine intermediate target levels that will apply until then. Until decisions in accordance with the new regulations have been made, the MREL requirements that have been set under the current regulations will apply. As a result of these proposals in the referral, SNDO intends to make new decisions on MREL requirements in accordance with the regular cycle for resolution planning—that is, in December 2021. For Swedish banks that are subsidiaries of foreign groups, the time of decision may deviate from this.

    When SNDO makes new decisions, the previous requirements will be replaced by a target level, which will apply as of January 01, 2022, as well as by a requirement that will apply as of January 01, 2024. SNDO intends to, in good time before December, revert with an updated memorandum on the application of MREL describing in further detail how these requirements will be determined. The target levels will be decided taking into account the banks’ current requirements and compliance, to enable a linear build-up until January 01, 2024. SNDO also mentioned that it will, during the Spring, present a referral for consideration with proposals for regulations, so that these can come into force as the same time as the new legislative proposal.
