Comments can be provided on these interim measures by May 25, 2021. These measures shall come into force on the date of promulgation.
The measures cover basic principles behind establishment of a recovery and resolution plan mechanism, formulation of recovery and resolution plans, supervision and administration of such plans, and supplementary requirements or provisions related to these plans. The measures also detail the scope of application, internal governance structure of financial institutions, and working mechanism between supervisory departments.

The measures stipulate that institutions meeting certain thresholds should formulate recovery and resolution plans. As per the measures, the regulatory authority can also designate institutions that need to formulate recovery and resolution plans based on factors such as business characteristics, risk status, and spillover effects. If the previously issued relevant measures are inconsistent with this measure, they shall be implemented in accordance with the provisions of these measures.
